Item # 645463
October 19, 1861
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 19, 1861 Among the articles are: "Correspondence Concerning Exchange of Prisoners" having many letters signed by: Benj. F. Butler; "War News of the Week" "The 300,000 Rebel-Negro-Invasion Project" ""Alarm In Kansas" "The Last Battle Order of Gen. A. Sydney Johnston" ""Mosby's Guerrillas" "Mosby Captures a Railroad Train..." "Rebel Accounts - The Battle of Darbytown" "the Civil War Between the Slave and Free States" "A Speech From Jeff. Davis" and so much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, very nice condition.
Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper 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.
