In just a few short months, the 150th Anniversary of the end of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln's death, funeral procession and burial will occur. According to a post by CBSDFW.COM on January 25th (see: http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2015/01/25/lincoln-items-sell-big-at-dallas-auction/), Heritage Auctions sold over $800,000 in Abraham Lincoln memorabilia last week doubling expectations and a lock of Lincoln's hair sold for $25,000 at the same auction.

History collectors and enthusiasts invest in Burns & Co. Rare Historical Art by acquiring extraordinary and large art pieces featuring famous and fascinating people from the past.

Nashville, Tennessee based Burns & Co. celebrates interesting and remarkable people, places and events in history through the production and distribution of unique and fascinating rare historic art. The firm sources "one of a kind" printed images of famous people (illustrations, portraits, rare prints, engravings and miscellaneous ephemera) and repurposes them into remarkable and rare historic art pieces for an exclusive clientele. They own the original vintage images used to produce the art pieces and their customers can too.

The company has recently completed their 150th Anniversary American Civil War Commemorative Series. This historical art series features the popular figures from the Union / "the North" as follows:

President Abraham Lincoln- "The Great Emancipator (their most valuable piece), Commander and General Ulysses S Grant- "Unconditional Surrender Grant", Admiral David Farragut- "Old Salamander". We have also produced an interesting and stunning piece from a rare book illustration, "War with the South, (Union) Victory".

The series also features the popular figures from the Confederacy / "the South" as follows:

Calvary General John Hunt Morgan - "Thunderbolt", Calvary General Joseph Wheeler- "Fighting Joe", Cavalry General Nathan Bedford Forrest - "The Wizard of the Saddle", General Benjamin Frank Cheatham - "Old Frank", "Confederate Generals of the South, Army No. 1" composite which includes General Braxton Bragg, General J.E. Johnson, General J. Longstreet, General J.B. Hood, General Kirby Smith, Ms. Adelicia Acklen Cheatham- Mistress of Belmont" (the wealthiest woman in Tennessee during the Civil War), and an ornate General Forrest / General Wheeler color composite.
Lincoln's Death, Funeral Procession and Burial:

B & C is currently producing new pieces related to Lincoln's death right now. The framed art works will be available online for purchase in February.

The company is marketing their products and services through the Burns & Co. website. Go to their "gallery section" to view framed and unframed art, and samples of rare images they use to create their magnificent historical art at: http://www.burnsandcogallery.com. The firm also holds exclusive showings in Nashville, TN and plans to market online via live auctions. The company is seeking select brokers, dealers and galleries as distribution partners.

B & C customers buy their art works because they love history and they prefer large, substantial art pieces that can be displayed prominently for friends, family, customers or the general public to view and enjoy on a frequent basis. Instead of buying a rare print as a collector or buying an antique print locally for framing purposes, our clients appreciate our unique approach and presentation of historical figures, places and events. They "go large" (framed pieces) because the historical figures they celebrate are “larger than life”.

The company is offering limited time promotional pricing to make their historical commemorative art pieces affordable to the general public. Visit their website at http://www.burnsandcogallery.com or reach them by phone at (800) 383-1848.
