THE NEW YORK TIMES, May 27, 1862

* Maryland
* Fredericksburg, Virginia

This 8 page newspaper is in nice condition (except for a 5 inch clean tear which can be repaired, shown in the photo) 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 FRONT PAGE Map: "THE LINE OF GEN. BANKS RETREAT INTO MARYLAND". Headlines in this issue includes: "The Retreat Of Gen. Banks" "His Whole Force and Trains Across the Potomac in Safety" "The Plans of the Rebels Circumvented" "The Fight At Front Royal" "The Rebels Reported to be Carrying the Black Flag" "A New Call For Troops" and much more. Nice to read about the Civil War as it was happening.
