Item # 645752
June 4, 1862
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, June 4, 1862 Among the articles within: "Letter From a Prisoner at Corinth" "The Union As it Was" "A Record of Blunders" "A Desperate Fight on the Chickahominy" "Gen. Beauregard has not Been at Richmond" "Curious Special Message of President Lincoln" "How Soldiers on the Field Treat Each Other" & so much more.
Eight pages, 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.
