On the Eve of Fort Sumter...
Item # 571238
April 13, 1861
MOORE'S RURAL NEW-YORKER, Rochester, NY, April 13, 1861 Inside reports provide a great backdrop for the 1st battle of Fort Sumter (see images): "A Charleston dispatch... says... there is great activity there, and believes that Sumter is to be attacked immediately." Additional details re: Sumter follow (see images).
Other topics, mostly agriculture/horticulture related, throughout. Eight pages, a little foxing and slight damp-staining (minor), otherwise very nice.
