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:
"Fall of the Rebel Stronghold"
"A Great Battle on the Macon Railroad"
"Hood's Army Cut In Twain"
"The Rebel General Hardee Killed"
"Sherman Enters The City"
"Surrender of Fort Morgan"
"The War In Tennessee"
and more. (see)
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 staining to the lower right corner, otherwise in very nice condition.
