Civil War era boxing and chess...



Item # 544660

May 24, 1862

WILKES' SPIRIT OF THE TIMES, New York, May 24, 1862.

* Boxing
* Chess


This newspaper, which was primarily a sporting newspaper, has a quite lengthy article headed: "The Ring in England" features the "Conclusion of a Fight Between Gannon and Hatton".  An additional subhead discusses a fight between Cook and Kenny.

Another article found within this issue and entitled: "Our Chess Department" includes a "problem of the week" and the answer to the previous weeks' problem.

This 16 page issue also includes some Civil War reports as well as other sports items. Nice.
