President Johnson's policies at the end of the war...



Item # 662202

July 26, 1865

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, July 26, 1865  From shortly after the end of the Civil War, some of the articles are headed: "Policy of Johnson's Administration" "Johnson & Brownlow" "The Monroe Doctrine--Another Discordant Element in the Abolition Party" "News of the Week" & 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.
