Jefferson Davis is inaugurated as President...
Item # 644027
February 25, 1862
THE NEW YORK HERALD, Feb. 25, 1862
* Jefferson Davis inauguration
* President of the Confederacy
* Nashville, Tennessee map
The front page features a nice map of: "THE CITY OF NASHVILLE" which includes the city streets (see).
But of most significance is the ftpg. report headed: "Inauguration of Jeff. Davis as President of the Bogus Confederacy" "Scenes and Ceremonies of the Occasion" and "Inaugural Address of Davis". This coverage takes two full columns on the ftpg. Other Civil War reporting on the front page and inside pages.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, various wear at the margins with some minor margin loss, not affecting text, a few archival mends inside..
