THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 2, 1864

Among the many articles are "From the South--From the Valley--Victory & Reverse in One Day" "From Trans-Mississippi" "Forrest" "New Recruits Arriving in Richmond" "Death of Chief Justice Taney" "War News of the Week" "From Grant's Army" "The Battle of Cedar Creek" "Sen. McDouglass...on the Negro Policy & The War" and much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, mild margin wear, 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.
