A pro-South newspaper from the North...



Item # 653855

May 11, 1864

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, May 22, 1864  Among the reports are: "Freedom of Debate" "Mrs. Lincoln" "War News of the Week" "From the Red River - The Rebels Fire into the Vessels..." "Latest From the Front--Our Wounded Sent to the Rear..." "Occupation of City Point..." "The Army of the Potomac Moving! Crossing the Rapidan!" "Sherman's Army on the Move..." and much more.
Eight pages, never-trimmed margins, various foxing & light dirtiness to the front page.

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.
