* Abraham Lincoln presidential election
This is the "Gazette of the Regular & Volunteer Forces" as noted in the masthead. The issue is just filled with Civil War and other military reports, and also has a nice editorial concerning the recent re-election of Lincoln as President of the United States, headed: "The Presidential Election" and which includes in part: "Thirty-two years have passed since...a re-election to the Chief Magistracy. On the 8th of November, 1864, that long intermitted honor fell upon Abraham Lincoln...If any one lesson is taught by Tuesday's election it is the unswerving & glorious fidelity of the people to the cause of the Union & the national honor. Four stormy years have passed..." with much more (see for portions).
A great wealth of war reporting. Complete in 16 pages, great condition.
