Battle of Springfield, Missouri... Two Lincoln Proclamations...



Item # 611094

August 22, 1861

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 22, 1861  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.
Among its articles are: "Prophetic Warning!! Speech of Stephen A. Douglas" "The War to be One of Negro Emancipation" "Southern Account of the Battle at Springfield, Missouri" "The Great Battle at Springfield" is quite lengthy; and much more. Page 6 has two Proclamations, each signed in type by: Abraham Lincoln.
Sixteen pages, never trimmed margins, very nice condition.
