THE NEW YORK HERALD, February 15, 1861  The front page reports the ominous events which would lead to the outbreak of the Civil War in less than two months as well as reports on the incoming administration of Abraham Lincoln, with first column headlines including: "THE NATIONAL CRISIS"  "Important From Washington" "The Report of the Conspiracy Committee" "No Evidence Found of a Design to Attack the Capital" "Mr. Lincoln's Inaugural And the Crisis" and more.
Among the subheads on the front page include:
"Mr. Lincoln's Inaugural Address" "The Struggle For Power Under the Lincoln Regime" "Movements of the President of the Southern Confederacy"  and more.
The front page also has near the top: "The Inauguration of Mr. Lincoln" "The Armed Occupation of the Federal Capital by Federal Troops to Secure the Peaceful Inauguration of the President Elect" and many subheads (see photos).
Also on the front page is: "Confederate States of America" which begins: "Hon. Jefferson Davis of Mississippi was unanimously elected President of the Confederate States of America, and the Hon. Alexander H. Stephens, of Georgia, was unanimously elected Vice President..." with more (see photos).
Great content is found on page 5 as well, with one column heads:
"The Progress of The President Elect" "The Reception of Mr. Lincoln in New York" "Arrangements For Mr. Lincoln's Reception at Albany" & more (see).
This is a nice account of President-elect Abraham Lincoln's journey to Washington, D.C. to be inaugurated as the 16th President a few weeks later.
Eight pages, a little light foxing, minor margin wear, generally in good condition.
