This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "IMPORTANT FROM THE SOUTH" "RUMORED EVACUATION OF WELDON N. C." "Gov. Clark, of North Carolina, Brings Jeff. Davis to Terms" "Virtual Restoration of North Carolina to the Union" "The Repulse On The James River" "The Occupation Of Pensacola" "Skirmish with rebels at Lynden, Va." and more.
Complete in eight pages. This issue is not fragile as newsprint from this era was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Little margin wear, otherwise in nice condition.
