Federal government to buy slaves & set them free...



Item # 656124

January 24, 1861

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Jan. 24, 1861 

* Government to free slaves ?
* Pre Civil War tensions


Page 4 has a very interesting article: "The Purchase Of The Slaves" which takes most of a column and concerns a proposition whereby the federal government would purchase slaves from their owners in border states and emancipate them, etc.
Page 2 also has an interesting & lengthy editorial: "No Civil War".
Eight pages, nice condition.
