Civil War newspaper from Kentucky...
Item # 595328
October 23, 1861
LOUISVILLE DAILY JOURNAL, Louisville, Kentucky, Oct. 23, 1861 Louisville is difficult to categorize as Union or Confederate during the Civil War as, depending on the time, there were factions within the city supporting both. To placate both sides the two leading newspapers took their stands: the "Courier" was very much pro-Confederate & the "Journal" was more pro-Union. This is the pro-Union newspaper.
The front page has various reports on the Civil War under the heading: "Letter From Cairo" and "Important from Paducah". There are additional war reports inside and on the back page.
Four pages, rejoined at the spine, some minor margin tears, generally nice.
