c. 1826, Original Artwork Commemorative Pen & Ink Drawing Titled: “The Illustrious Champion Of Liberty General George Washington First President of the United States / Pen Drawing by J. F. Rogers / Raisin Mich(igan)”, Choice Crisp Extremely Fine.
This is an outstanding quality, wonderful large original masterpiece of Calligraphy being an original Pen & Ink Broadside-size tribute to President George Washington, measuring 15.75" x 19.25" and meant to display. This masterful artwork is completely hand-drawn, and Artist Signed, “J. F. Rogers” of “Raisin” (Township in Michigan which was established in 1826 and the Rogers family was prominent in its founding). Crisp and never folded, having several faint light bends which are not seen when laid flat, a sealed 1” edge split at top and a sealed small tear at its bottom marginal edge, neither anywhere near the drawings. Exquisitely pen and ink drawn with sharp crisp artistic execution as shown. A majestic American Eagle with wings spread and a banner in its beak is displayed at top. Below at center is a 3.5” Portrait of George Washington after the original oil painting portrait by Gilbert Stuart, in Oval. Wonderful graphics and legends surround, with the president’s name “WASHINGTON” in bold decorative text below. One of the finest examples of calligraphy we have encountered. This is an original artwork, it is not a copy! Our estimate may prove conservative. With such impressive eye appeal this artwork is an obvious perfect candidate for framing and display.

Commander Oliver Perry’s victory on Lake Erie and William Henry Harrison’s defeat of Proctor’s army in Canada (in which Tecumseh is slain) end hostilities on northwestern American border.

Harrison, departing for Washington, leaves Colonel (later General) Lewis Cass as the military governor at Detroit. Cass continues, under presidential appointment, as the governor of the Michigan Territory for 18 years. In 1826 “Raisin” Township in Michigan which was established.
