Item # 210753
March 8, 1890
DESERET EVENING NEWS, Salt Lake City, Utah Territory, March 8, 1890 This newspaper is a "territorial" issue, printed six years before Utah would become a state. The front page has a short yet interesting item concerning Buffalo Bill, datelined from Rome & reading: "An Italian journal, commenting on the Wild West show, makes the astounding announcement that Buffalo Bill held the grand rank of colonel under Washington in the great war." The rest of the issue is taken up with various news reports from the state, the nation, and around the world. Complete in 4 pages, never bound nor trimmed, three horizontal folds with some light browning & minor separation at the folds, generally quite nice.
