Early Kentucky... Niagara Falls is no more!



Item # 655331

March 3, 1841

LOUISVILLE WEEKLY JOURNAL, Kentucky, March 3, 1841  An early Kentucky newspaper from 20 years before the outbreak of the Civil War. The ftpg. has a curious article: "Destruction of the Niagara Falls" which takes nearly half a column, noting near the beginning: "We hasten to announce to our readers & the world an event in its nature at once the most stupendous & sublime that has ever been recorded in the annals of the wonderful The Falls of Niagara--the unmatched phenomenon of nature...IS NO MORE...". The report goes on to explain what happened.
The back page has various illustrated ads including that that are for runaway slaves.
Four pages, water staining in the top quadrant, a bit irregular at the spine, good condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
