The capital of the Confederacy surrenders...



Item # 649989

April 8, 1865

NEW YORK WEEKLY DAY-BOOK, April 8, 1865  Fine coverage of the fall of Richmond, the capital of the Confederacy. Keep in mind that this was a racist newspaper in the North, calling itself: "An Anti-Abolition Democratic Paper For White Men" on the back page. So all reporting has this bias.
Page 5 begins with column heads: "Evacuation of Richmond" "Three Days' Fighting" "Capture of Artillery And Prisoners" "Confederate Iron-Clads Blown Up" "Heavy Losses on Both Sides" 'Partial Details of the Fighting" "Sherman Still At Goldsboro". Extensive coverage here taking most of the page with many subheads and no fewer than 6 dispatches signed in type: A. Lincoln.
Page 4 has a lengthy & interesting editorial concerning the end of the war.
Eight pages, rejoined at the spine, foxing to the top half of the ftpg., nice condition.
