This genuine newspaper has a wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column, front page headlines on the Civil War are: "The Burning Of Columbus" "Major-Generals Confirmed" "The War In Tennessee" "Important from The Tennessee River" "Three Rebel Regiments Repulsed With Slaughter" "The war In Missouri" "Jeff. Thompson's 'Secret Expedition' Pursued into the Swamps" and more. More Civil War reporting inside.
Complete in eight pages. 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. A little light foxing, a little margin wear, mainly along spine with minor loss, otherwise nice.
