Successful move by the Rebels...
Item # 606261
September 19, 1861
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 21, 1864 Articles include: "McClellan's Letter" "General Rosecrans" "General Grant on the Draft" "A Bold & Successful Move by the Rebels" "The Terrible Atrocities in Kentucky" "The Crop & the Armies" and much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed sold it folds out to one large sheet, very nice condition.
Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
