Item # 661494
July 30, 1862
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, June 14, 1865 From shortly after the end of the Civil War, some of the headlines include: "From The South" "The Eastern Press" "The Prices of Negro Labor Fixed in Virginia" "Emphatic Repudiation of Negro Suffrage in Tennessee" "The Conspiracy Trials" "Trial of Prisoners in Hand Cuffs" "Treatment of Jeff. Davis--The Ironing & Why It Was Done" "Where Is General Lee?" "Capture of Sabine Pass" & so much more.
Eight pages, nice 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.
