THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, July 2, 1862 Among the articles are: "Passage of the Emancipation Bill in the House of Representatives" "Listen & Believe What a Soldier Writes" "War News of the Week" "The Fight at Richmond" "Desperate Battle Before Richmond" "News From the Army" & 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.
