The words of the great Lincoln, calling his people to war!

Hannibal Hamlin

The Civil War draft poster is a Fallout 3 item found in the Museum of History, in the offices section on a bookshelf in the southeast corner of the library area downstairs.


When standing before the correct shelf containing the poster, your arrow should face to the left of your local map on the Pip-Boy. There's a pillar to the right of the shelf, and a red firehose box should be visible to your right as well. The poster looks like a frame of a picture, and it's at the top right corner of the shelf.

  • Sometimes the poster falls onto the floor or face-down while remaining on the shelf. If you stand in the position mentioned above, the item will be directly below you or sticking out on the shelf as a larger tan frame. If the poster has landed face down, it looks like a larger tannish floor tile.
  • Though it no longer serves any purpose, this item is still found in the game files for Fallout: New Vegas.
