September 12, 1861
NEW YORK HERALD, Sept. 12, 1861
* Rare full front page map
* Battle of Carnifex Ferry
The entire front page is taken up with a huge and very detailed map headed: "THE NATIONAL BATTLE GROUND. The Armies of the Potomac--Encampments of Over 300,000 Armed Men--Scene of the Coming Decisive Conflict" which shows from Washington, D.C. & Alexandria, northwest to Buckeystown, Point of Rocks, and Leesburg, with the Bull Run battlefield to the southwest. Very rare to find an entire front page taken up with a map. War reporting is inside.
Complete in 8 pages, very nice condition with some very light damp staining at the right side, and very displayable.
