1861 Civil War... re. Declaration of war..
Item # 594659
May 14, 1861
THE VERMONT CHRONICLE (weekly), Windsor, May 14, 1861
* Original Civil War era
This genuine newspaper has Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the reports on page 3 are: "The Southern Congress, President Jefferson Davis's Message", "Tennessee Committed to Rebellion", and more.
Other news of the day. 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. Complete in 4 pages, minor irregularity along spine, otherwise very nice condition.
