Item # 628707
March 20, 1861
WESTERN CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, Cincinnati, Ohio, March 20, 1861 Lincoln's election in the rear view mirror... the Battle of Fort Sumter only weeks away... the foul stench of the pending Civil War filling the nostrils of Americans throughout the land... The reality of a crisis at hand was obvious to all. It is with this as the backdrop it appears quite fitting to appreciate the page 3 account of a visit to Valley Forge and a reflection of the George Washington's "Prayer at Valley Forge" (see images). Other news of the day throughout including front page talk regarding the tensions between the North and the South.
