Decline & fall of the Confederacy...

The Atlantic cable route across the ocean...



Item # 668744

August 5, 1865

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Aug. 5, 1865 

* Atlantic cable route - U.S. map
* Southern Confederacy no more


Certainly the graphic appeal of this issue is the very large map showing the route of the Atlantic cable across the Atlantic Ocean, which also presents a nice map of the United States at this time with most of the area west of the Mississippi still as territories (see). Curiously there is no related text.
Much of the text on the ftpg. is a great overview of the Civil War with: "The Decline and Fall of The Southern Confederacy" "An Inside View" "Richmond A Year Ago".
Eight pages, uncut and unbound (uncommon), nice condition.
