Great letter from Lincoln defines his position on slavery...



Item # 639645

May 4, 1864

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, May 4, 1864  Among the column heads on the Civil War are: "The Army of the Potomac Quiet..." "Trouble in the Army of the Potomac" "A. Lincoln Defines His Position" on slavery, which is a very fine, detailed letter signed in type: A. Lincoln. Also: "Lincoln and His Generals" "The Field After the Battle of Pleasant Hill" "Lincoln's Letter to Kentucky"  "War News of the Week" "The Surrender of Plymouth" and more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, scattered foxing, nice condition.

Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", it 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.
