NEW YORK TIMES Sept. 5, 1864
* The Fall of Atlanta, Georgia
* General William T. Sherman
An historic issue as the front page announces the fall of Atlanta, with first column heads including: "OFFICIAL" "The Fall of Atlanta" "The Official Report of Maj.-Gen. Sherman" "His Strategy And Battles" "Gen. Hood Decamps from Atlanta in the Night". The report is signed in type: W. T. Sherman.
The back page has: "Our Prisoners In The South" "Condition of those Confined at Andersonville, Ga." as well as a diagram: "The Camp Of Union Prisoners In Georgia" and more.
Eight pages, irregular at the spine margin, generally good condition. Note: the day, "5", did not print in the dateline of any of the issues we have had, but the date is at the top of every inside page.
