Much on the Civil War in a pro-South newspaper...



Item # 654282

October 8, 1862

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 8, 1862 

* Rare pro-Confederate publication

Among the front page reports are: "Swearing Men to Disbelieve in Negro Slavery" "Address to the President of the United States" by a meeting of governors of the loyal states; "Col. Sibley's Expedition - Battle with the Indians near the Yellow Medicine--Camp Attacked by 300 Indians..." "The Indian War".
Among articles inside: "What the Army Threatens to Do With Abolitionism" "The Present Administration of the Country--Its Promises--Its Doings--Its Chances" "War News of the Week" "McClellan's Report of the Battles of South Mountain and Antietam" "Official Confirmation of the Capture of Munfordsville" and so much more.
Eight pages, 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.
