* Southern crisis
* Secession options

Among the one column headlines on the tensions building in the South prior to the Civil War are:

* The Cotton States
to Secede on the Third of March

and more. Loads of interesting reading

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 and tear, otherwise in good condition.
