Lot 911: Handwritten homework assignment in pencil headed "History," three pages on two sheets, 8.5 x 11, signed at the top of the first page, "Sean Flynn," and on the second page, "S. Flynn." An assignment concerning the Civil War–era South. In part (spelling and grammar retained): "The Emancipation Proclamation was when Lincoln said in 1860 that by the next new year the slaves were to be freed…After the war the gov't was faced with rebuilding the South but Johnson the president thought that the South should rebuild herself…Dred Scott was a Negro who escaped from his master in a free state. Supreme court ruled he was to go back to his master even if he was in a free state. This was a victory for the South." Several corrections were made by his teacher in red pencil, and he received a 97 on the assignment. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds. From the estate of Sean Flynn's mother, actress Lili Damita.
