This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "THE REBELLION" "Highly Important News from Western Virginia" "Attack on the Union Forces at Gauley Bridge by the Rebels Under Floyd" "The Enemy Defeated by Gen. Rosecrans with Great Loss" "Probable Capture of Floyd's Rebel Army"
