Only American executed for slave trading... Three Civil War maps...



Item # 653122

November 8, 1861

THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, November 8, 1861  Pages 3 and 4 contain lengthy articles related to the conviction of the slave trader Nathaniel Gordon, who would become the only American citizen in U.S. history to be tried, convicted, and executed from activities related to the slave trade - quite historic.

Also of interest: The mid-section of the front page includes three Civil War maps extending the full length, headed: "The Southern Coast & Its Railroad Communication with the Interior" "Bull Bay & the Coast to Charleston" and "Charleston, Port Royal Entrance & Beaufort" (see). Plus the first column has many Civil War heads  on the fighting, including: "THE GREAT REBELLION" "Continuance of the Fighting in Western Virginia" "An Expedition from Cairo Against Columbus" and more (see images).

Eight pages, very nice condition.
