17th Vice President Under Ulysses S. Grant Carte de Visite
SCHUYLER COLFAX (1823-1885). 17th Vice President of the United States under U.S. Grant 1869-73, Representative from Indiana, Speaker of the House 1863-69, Whig activist and founder of Indiana's Republican Party.
c. 1868 Carte de Visite Photograph, Published by Anthony with his imprint on the reverse, after a negative by Brady, Choice Very Fine. This Carte de Visite is in excellent condition having sharp contrast with rounded corners to fit into a prior album. This a rare image, seldom seen, it was used for the woodcut seen in "Frank Leslie's Illustrated," December 26, 1863, illustrated on page 221.
Schuyler Colfax (March 23, 1823 " January 13, 1885) was a United States Representative from Indiana (1855"1869), Speaker of the House of Representatives (1863"1869), and the 17th Vice President of the United States (1869"1873). To date, he is one of only two Americans (John Nance Garner in the 20th century being the other) to have served as both House speaker and vice president.

Colfax was present at the White House the night the Emancipation Proclamation was signed on January 1, 1863. After noting that his hand had been shaking a bit when he signed, Mr. Lincoln told Colfax it was not "because of any uncertainty or hesitation on my part; but it was just after the public reception, and three hours' hand-shaking is not calculated to improve a man's chirography. The South had fair warning, that if they did not return to their duty, I should strike at this pillar of their strength. The promise must now be kept, and I shall never recall one word."
