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: "The Rebellion" "Important News From Missouri" "The Recapture of Lexington" "Dispersion of a Band of Rebels" "Dispersion of a Band of Rebels at Lynn Creek" 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. Minor spine wear, otherwise in nice condition.
