This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "NEWS FROM WEST VIRGINIA" "A Passenger Train Captured Near Kearnysville Depot" "The Passengers Robbed of Money and Valuables" "The Great Gun" "News From Tennessee" and more.
Complete in eight pages. This issue is not fragile as newsprint from this era was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Little staining, otherwise in nice condition.
