Abraham Lincoln bill....

Item # 613013

July 23, 1862

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, July 23, 1862  Among the various articles are "War News of the Week" "The Confiscation Bill" which includes 2 related letters to Congress each signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln; "White People Obliged to Get Out of Wagons to Make Room for Negroes in Gen. Banks' Division" "Negro Equality" and more.
Eight pages, nice condition.
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.
