The Decline and Fall of The Southern Confederacy...
Large map of the route of the Atlantic Cable...
Item # 651592
August 5, 1865
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Aug. 5, 1865
* Great map of the proposed Atlantic cable with U.S. map
* The Fall of the Confederacy
Certainly the graphic appeal of this issue is the very large map showing the route of the Atlantic cable across the Atlantic Ocean, which also presents a nice map of the United States - with most of the area west of the Mississippi at this time still being territories (see images). Curiously there is no related text.
Much of the text on the front page is a great overview of the Civil War under the heading: "The Decline and Fall of The Southern Confederacy" "An Inside View" "Richmond A Year Ago" and more. Other news of the day is found throughout.
Eight pages, great condition.
