Letter critical of "Abraham I"...



Item # 626247

November 26, 1862

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 26, 1862  Among the articles are: "Signs of Backing Down" "A Petition to Abraham I" which is a letter to Lincoln critical of his stance on African-Americans (see for portions); "The Horrors in Missouri" "The Peninsular Campaign" "From Minnesota" "Terrorism & Outrage in Missouri" "The Abolition Proclamation of President Lincoln" and much more.
Eight pages, very 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.
