Pro-Union newspaper from this Civil War border state...

Item # 586785

September 12, 1865

THE UNION STANDARD, Lexington, Kentucky, Sept. 12, 1865

* Rare post Civil War title

A scarce title from this border state, shortly after the end of the Civil War. The paper was formally titled "The National Unionist", obviously being pro-North during the Civil War. Page 2 has several items which relate to the conclusion of the Civil War including a Proclamation signed in type by the President: Andrew Johnson (see photos). A great wealth of ads as well including a lengthy, illustrated circus ad on page 3.
Four pages, archival mounting tape at the blank spine margin of pg. 1 only, clear tape to flatten creases on pages 2 & 3, nice condition.
