A collection of autographs from American Civil War politicians is heading for auction at Swann Galleries, featuring signatures from Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, George Washington and more. The book of autographs was assembled and sold to benefit wounded soldiers, which considering it dates from 1864 makes it seem really rather progressive. 

 Estimated value for the book is $80,000-120,000 from Swann Auction Galleries- it's quite an historical marvel so I've no doubt it'll bring in a fine price and most likely end up in a museum, where it arguably belongs. Auction takes place on the 16th of March.
