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: "WILMINGTON", "EVACUATION OF FORT ANDERSON", "Gen. Schofield Makes and Attack with Eight Thousand Men", "Our Forces Moving On Wilmington", "From Sherman" 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. In good condition.
