This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "CHARLESTON", "The Rebel Garrison Leave Under Cover of Night", "The City Surrendered by Mayor Macbeth", "ITS OCCUPATION BY OUR FORCES", "The Stars and Stripes Wave Over Sumter", "Over Two Hundred Pieces of Artillery Captured" and more (see photos).
Complete in eight pages. This issue is not fragile as newsprint from this era was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Nice condition.
