  • Vintage ink signature of Charles de Gaulle, signed “C. de Gaulle,” across a Nicaraguan postage stamp affixed to an off-white 5.25 x 3.25” card.
     
  • Framed beneath an 11 x 14” official portrait on canvas of Charles de Gaulle taken during World War II dressed in a Général de Brigade uniform, 1942.
     
  • HISTORY: Stamp was issued to commemorate the 1943 Roosevelt-Churchill conference held in Casablanca, French Morocco. This meeting caused friction between Churchill and the French. Charles de Gaulle, the accepted leader of the Free French, knew nothing of the meeting before it happened despite the fact that it was being held on French territory. As it was being held in part of France, he felt that he had an automatic right to be there. De Gaulle was not briefed about the planning for the meeting because it would have increased the security risk.
  • This display has been archivally designed and preserved using 100% acid-free materials, archival mylar, and 97% UV TruVu Museum plexi-glass.
     
  • FRAMED SIZE: 56 x 91 cm
