THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 27, 1861

This 8 page newspaper is in nice condition due to the use of cotton and rag paper during this very historic time in U.S. history. This issue is loaded with advertisements and Civil War reports throughout from the day it was first reported which includes the following headlines: "THE GREAT REBELLION", "IMPORTANT FROM MISSOURI", "The Rebels Again Threatening Athens", "Expected Junction of Hardee and Pillow", "Probable Movements Against St. Louis and Jefferson City", and much more.  A nice piece of history from this famous newspaper.
