Item # 616237
March 18, 1877
THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 18, 1877
* Frederick Douglass
* U.S. Marshall
The top of the first column of the front page has: "Washington" "Mr. Fred. Douglass Confirmed" "An Interesting Discussion in the Executive Session...No Color Line Necessary". The article notes near the beginning: "...upon the confirmation of Fred Douglass to be United States Marshal for the District of Columbia..." with much more.
Other news of the day. Complete in twelve pages, evenly toned, a little margin wear & tear, must be handled with care.
