Very displayable Civil War newspaper...
Item # 212441
February 22, 1862
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, Feb. 22, 1862 The front page features a quite large map headed: "THE DESTROYED BRIDGES IN ALABAMA--Map of the Locality--The Principal Communication of the Southwest with their Rebel Capital Cut off--Nashville Completely Isolated--The Loyal Alabamians Rising in Defence of the Union, etc." and in addition the front page also has a nice print of "Commodore David D. Porter" plus various one column headlines which include: "The Rebel Account of the Fort Donelson Battle" "Capture of Bentonville!" and much more (see photos). This is the tri-weekly edition of the Inquirer, meaning within its 8 pages is a second full front page dated Feb. 21 with masthead, headlines, etc. (see photo) essentially giving you two complete front pages among the 8 pages in this issue! And this 2nd front page is extremely displayable as well with a nice map captioned: "Map of Norfolk, Fortress Monroe, Craney Island, Sewall's Point, etc." in addition to a nice stack of one column headlines which include: "Clarksville Evacuated!" "Burnside's Late Victory" "Evacuation of Columbus" "On To Memphis!" "The War In Arkansas" and much more (see photos). Truly a great issue for display with two great front pages! Never bound nor trimmed, a few small binding holes affect a couple of words on the top front page, otherwise quite nice.
