The Birchard Letter (June 29, 1863), was a public letter from United States President Abraham Lincoln to M. Birchard and eighteen other Ohio Democrats in which Lincoln defended the administration's treatment of antiwar agitators, and offered to release Clement Vallandigham if a majority of those to whom the letter was addressed would subscribe to certain pledges in connection with the prosecution of the American Civil War.
