A Proclamation by Abraham Lincoln...
Item # 647560
July 20, 1864
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, July 20, 1864
* Rare pro Confederate title
* Abraham Lincoln proclamation
Among the reports are: "Gen. Hunter's Campaign--His Imbecility & Vandalism" "Bad Principles--Bad Men!" "The President's Fast Day Proclamation" signed in type: Abraham Lincoln; "War News of the Week" "General Forrest--Southern News" "From the South--Details of Hunter's Retreat" & much 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", 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.
