The fall of Richmond...



Item # 653860

April 4, 1865

NEW-YORK TRIBUNE, April 4, 1865  See the photos for this terrific and extremely graphic issue reporting the capture of Richmond, which essentially meant the end of the Confederacy. Lee would surrender to Grant at Appomattox just 5 days later. The first column heads read: "VIRGINIA ! " "Richmond and Petersburg Taken ! " "Colored Troops the First to Enter the Slaveholders Capital" "Gen. Grant Attempting to Cut Off Lees Escape" "A Portion Of Richmond On Fire ! " "The Citizens Welcome the Union Troops" "Details of the Late Battles from Our Correspondents" "The Enthusiasm Of The North". Note the beautiful engraving of the large eagle, plus the map headed: "The Field Of Operations In Virginia."
Taking most of pg. 8 is a huge map: "Richmond and Thirty Miles Around It" "A Topographical Map of the City Of Richmond And Vicinity."
Complete in 8 pages, very nice condition. One of the best issues we have offered on the fall of Richmond.
