Inauguration of Jefferson Davis...



Item # 559638

February 19, 1861

THE NEW YORK TIMES, February 19, 1861

* Jefferson Davis inauguration
* Confederate President
* Abraham Lincoln inauguration train


The front page has: "The Incoming Administration" "Progress of the President Elect Toward Washington" "The Trip From Buffalo to Albany" with the reporting taking close to half of the page

with subheads: "Mr.Lincoln's Speech at Utica" "Reception and Speech at Albany" "Mr. Lincoln's Speech at Rochester" "The Mayor's Address - Mr. Lincoln's Reply" and even more carrying over to the back page. Excellent coverage on his journey from home to Washington, D.C.

But perhaps the best content in this issue is found on the back page, with: "Important From Montgomery" "Inauguration of Jefferson Davis as President of the Southern Confederacy" "His Inaugural Address" "Policy of the New Government Foreshadowed" with the report including the text of his inaugural address (see for portions).

Also, page 4 has: "The Inaugural of President Davis" takes a full column and has nice coverage of the proceedings, with various editorial comment (see for portions).

Eight pages, a bit irregular at the blank spine margin, excellent condition.
