This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headings on the Civil War are: "'NEW MADRID IS OURS'" "Occupation of the Town by Our Forces" "Conflict Between The Gunboats" "Reported Evacuation of Island No. 10" "Our Army At Manassas" "Skirmish with the Rebel Cavalry on the Strasburg Road" and more.
Complete in eight pages. This issue is not fragile as newsprint from this era was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Nice condition.
