Item # 639393
November 11, 1864
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Nov. 11, 1864
* Arming Negroes ?
* Jefferson Davis
Fully half of the front page and a bit of the bkpg. are taken up with: "Jefferson Davis's Message" before the Senate and House of Representatives of the Confederate States of America (see photos for small portions).
There is considerable detail on the struggles of the Confederacy, particularly during these closing months of its existence. His address concludes on the bkpg. where it is signed by him in type: Jefferson Davis.
There is various other Civil War reporting on the ftpg. & inside pages.
Complete in 8 pages, very nice condition save for minor loss to the lower left corner, affecting text but not remotely close to the Jeff Davis report.
