Item # 653066
February 24, 1862
NEW-YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, NY, Feb. 24, 1862 Several columns on both pages 4 and 6 are dedicated to the potential problems surrounding the emancipation of the slaves. References to President Abraham Lincoln's comments made in his annual address as well as those made by Fredrick Douglass are woven in to the discussion. Should they be relocated to another location within the country, are should a colony be set up on foreign soil. The complexity of the problem, largely forgotten over time, is brought to light through the coverage. See images for details.
Other news of the day include Civil War related reporting is found throughout.
