In the North, but pro-South... Near the end of the war...



Item # 633659

January 11, 1865

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 11, 1865  This issue is from near the end of the Civil War. Among the articles on the front page are: "The Raid on the Mobile & Ohio Railroad--Sherman Advancing into South Carolina" and "From the South--Latest from Wilmington--Disappearance of the Federal Fleet--Caustic Article on Butler--Savannah & Sherman's Operations...". Inside pages include: "War News of the Week" " "Progress of Conquest in 1864" "The Confederate General Cleburne" "Determination of the Administration to Wage a War of Extermination Against the Rebels--All Offers of Amnesty to be Withdrawn" and much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, 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.
