Item # 611241
April 4, 1865
NEW YORK SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE, April 4, 1865
* Richmond, Virginia falls (1st report)
* Confederate capital - war nears the end
One of the middle columns of the front page announces one of the more significant events of the Civil War with: "VIRGINIA ! " "GLORIOUS NEWS ! " "Richmond Is Ours!" "Evacuation of Petersburg!" "Tremendous Fighting!" "Lee's Entire Army Is Routed" and more. Above the column heads is a nice engraving of an eagle on the U.S. shield (see). Many war-related reports on inside pages as well.
Eight pages, very nice, clean condition.
