Gantt..." "Death of a Promising Young Marylander" with various other tidbits throughout the page. Plus there is more on the Civil War on the back page of this single sheet newspaper, including: "The Spring Campaign--Its Importance & Prospects--General Grant on the Road to Richmond--What is Before Us" and "Negro Equality in the North" "The Question In Congress--Yankee Senators Declare Unequivocally for it, & Admit that the War is to Enforce It--Debate In the United States Senate" and "Miscegenation--What it Means--Remarkable Confession of a Republican Journal" which begins: "The Yankees are running mad in their love for the negro. Not content with sacrificing one million of lives of their own men in this war for the negro..." with much more (see photos). Also: "Yankee Accounts of Forrests's Raid" and a dispatch from the "Hqts. of Stuart's Brigade".
A very nice single sheet newspaper, folio size, never bound nor trimmed, in very nice, clean condition.
