THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, March 30, 1864
* Rare pro Confederate title
* Abraham Lincoln proclamation
The ftpg. has: "A Proclamation" signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln. Among the various articles within: "The Aspiring Negro" "Negromania" "Strength of the Confederate Armies--The Starvation Theory Exploded" "War News of the Week" & much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, good condition.
Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
