Negroes in the Civil War...



Item # 661753

April 9, 1862

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, April 9, 1862  From the midst of the Civil War, some of the articles are headed: "Free Negroes Crowding into Ohio" "Missionaries to Work & Educate the Negroes at Port Royal" "War News of the Week" "Slavery in the District of Columbia" "The Horrors of War" "General Rosecrans' Farewell to His Soldiers" & 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.
