Yankees capture the Confederate capital... War nears its end...



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.
