Item # 651767
June 1, 1868
THE NEW YORK TIMES, June 1, 1868 Page 5 has, under the heading "Our Dead Heroes," multiple, day 2 reports regarding the 1st official Memorial Day celebrations from throughout the country. Locations include Jersey City, Newark, Nashville, Providence, Hartford, Portland, St. Louis, Dayton, and more. Nice to have these early reports. Other news of the day is found throughout.
Complete in eight pages, page 5 has a piece missing from the right margin which only minimally impacts an ad, otherwise in nice condition. See images for details.
