ABRAHAM LINCOLN Ford's Theatre John Wilkes Booth ASSASSINATION in 1865 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 373129814146

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: NEW YORK HERALD, April 16, 1865 * Abraham Lincoln's assassination * John Wilkes Booth- Ford's Theatre This date was a Sunday, and only rarely were Sunday newspapers bound into volumes held by libraries. As such, this date is arguably more scarce than the issue of April 15. And when it comes to graphic appeal, I would suggest that this edition of the 16th surpasses that of the 15th. All columns on all 8 pages have black mourning rules for the death of President Abraham Lincoln. Almost the entire first column of the front page is taken up with headlines on the assassination and the reaction of the nation, including: "OUR LOSS" "The Great National Calamity" "DEATH of the PRESIDENT" "Sad Details of the Terrible Event" "T...
