Map of Fort Wright, on the Mississippi...
Item # 563297
April 24, 1862
THE NEW YORK HERALD, New York, April 24, 1862
* Confederate built Fort Wright
* Memphis, Tennessee map
Although the front page is mostly taken up with advertisements, the prime feature is certainly the nice Civil War map headed: "FORT WRIGHT ON THE MISSISSIPPI. Its Position & Strength--Important Section of the River--Commodore Foote's Attack." The front page also has a column of news from Central and South America. There are some Civil War reports on inside pages.
Complete in 12 pages, some tears near the spine on inside leaves only, nice condition.
