February 8, 1862

THE NEW YORK HERALD, New York City, February 8, 1862.

* Detailed Midwest map
* Fort Henry Tennessee

This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration.

The front page has a nice map titled:

* THE IMPORTANT VICTORY IN TENNESSEE

Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are:

* Highly Important From Tennessee
* Splendid Naval Victory
* Surrender of Fort Henry to the Union Gunboats
* Determined Resistance of the Rebels
* Sketch Of Fort Henry
* The Burnside Expedition
* The Forward Movement on Roanoke Island

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 light foxing and minor spine wear, otherwise in nice condition.
