"Confederate" newspaper with a Jeff Davis letter on the front page...
Item # 646136
June 15, 1864
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, June 15, 1864 This issue includes on the ftpg. "Peace Propositions" "Correspondence Between Jeff. Davis and Governor Vance" of North Carolina, including a quite lengthy letter signed in type: Jefferson Davis.
Among other items are: "How Lincoln's Nomination Was Received" "General Morgan's Defeat of Averill" "Shameful Cruelty to Wounded Soldiers" "War News of the Week" "Remarkable Anti-Negro Article in the Lincoln Organ of New York" 'Peace Propositions" "The Raid In Kentucky--The Latest" & more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, nice condition.
Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", it 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.
