Battle of Springfield, Missouri... Movements of Mrs. Lincoln....



Item # 611526

September 5, 1861

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 5, 1861 

* Battle of Wilson's Creek
* Springfield MO Missouri


Among the many war-related column heads are: "A Civil War Wanted at Our Doors" "The Effect of the Abolition of Slavery Upon the North--Henry Clay's Opinion" "The War In Missouri! Visit to the Battle Field Near Springfield" "Highly Important From Missouri--Gen. Fremont Declares Martial Law in the State" "Rebel Account" "From the Rebel Capital" "Movements of Mrs. Lincoln" and much more.
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.
Eight pages, never-trimmed margins, scattered foxing, mostly nice.
