This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "THE DRAFT IN NEW YORK", "'All Quiet Along The Lines'", "ORDER REIGNS SUPREME", "SEVERAL COLORED MEN DRAWN", "NEWS FROM THE SOUTHWEST", "Arrival of Sick Soldiers from Vicksburg", "The Siege Of Charleston" and more.
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. Nice condition.
