President Jackson's farewell address...



Item # 663392

April 25, 1861

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, April 25, 1861  Among the interesting articles are: "Negro Insurrection" "Order & Drill in Camp Jackson" "President Jackson's Farewell Address to the People of the United States" is signed in type: Andrew Jackson and takes 1 1/2 pages; "War News!" "Organization & Parts of the Army" and much more.
Eight pages, wide never-trimmed margins, 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.
