THE NEW YORK HERALD, New York City, July 1, 1862
* Richmond, Virginia... Seven Days battles
* 2 front page maps
This Genuine newspaper has a Wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration.
The front page has two maps titled: "THE BATTLE-FIELDS BEFORE RICHMOND" & "THE BASE OF OPERATIONS OF JAMES RIVER"
Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "THE OPERATIONS BEFORE RICHMOND" "Three Days' Important Events" "A GREAT BATTLE ON FRIDAY" "WHITE HOUSE EVACUATED" "List of the Killed and Wounded" and more.
Complete in twelve 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. Never bound with little central fold wear and noticeable creases, otherwise in good condition.
