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

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.

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...
