From Houston during the Civil War...



Item # 610353

April 10, 1865

THE HOUSTON TRI-WEEKLY TELEGRAPH, April 10, 1865 Newspapers from Texas are very uncommon, particularly from before or during the Civil War period. Here is an issue from two days after Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia, containing three dispatches about the Union assault on Fort Steadman, each signed in type: U.S. Grant. Pg. 3 has Andrew Johnson's inaugural speech given before the Senate. The back page has "General Order, No. 15" which discusses the "...vicious habit of buying, selling and transferring furloughs...", signed in type: J. B. Magruder. Also a list of the battles in which the 1st, 4th and 5th Texas Regiments participated. Other minor war-related content and a few ads as well.
Four pages, some glue residue from address label in part of the masthead causing slight loss to two letters in the title, first leaf has a small piece missing at the top causing just a bit of loss in the masthead, pgs. 2 & 3 each have a worn area causing minor loss in unrelated text, small binding holes in the blank left margin, otherwise good condition. A very rare issue from this date.
