Proclamation for a Day of Fasting, Humiliation, and Prayer - Maker: Commonwealth of Massachusetts
Antique black and white broadside proclamation, "For a Day of Fasting, Humiliation, and Prayer," issued by Massachusetts Governor Alexander H. Bullock (1866-69), marking April 4, 1867, as a day for all citizens of the Commonwealth to "seek that aid from the Supreme Ruler which shall enable us to conduct our personal living, and to discharge our mission as a political society, in harmony with His laws." Strikingly religious in tone to the modern ear, the proclamation mentions the fortitude required for "the reconstruction of this empire" after the "recent war" that "has secured to the enduring life of the nation and to the welfare of the oppressed." Emblazoned with a precursor to the Commonwealth's modern seal, featuring a Native American holding his bow and arrow at center, and a bent arm holding a sword overhead, with the motto "Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem" ("By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty."). Originally folded, good condition, some toning and lower left corner tear, measures 28 x 20.
