Williamsport Maryland 1862 Civil War....
Item # 210261
May 26, 1862
PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER from Philadelphia PA and dated May 26, 1862. This 8 page newspaper is in nice condition (except for some margin wear with a few minor tears) due to the use of cotton and rag paper during this very historic time in U.S. history. This issue is loaded with advertisements and Civil War reports throughout from the day it was first reported which includes the following headlines: "The Army of General McClellan Near Richmond" "A Fight near Ellison's Mills--The Louisiana Tigers Badly Cut Up--70 Left Dead on the Field" "THE REBELS THREATEN TO CROSS THE POTOMAC AT WILLIMASPORT AND HARPER'S FERRY" "The President Takes Possession of all the Railroads in the United States" "Com. Farragut Demands the Surrender of Vicksburg, Miss." "Reported Capture of Weldon and Raleigh, North Carolina" and much more. A nice piece of history from this famous newspaper.
