Sherman advancing upon Savannah...
Item # 582714
December 15, 1864
THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 15, 1864
* General William T. Sherman
* March to the sea nearing the end
* Savannah, Georgia
* Jesse James ? probably
Among the nice front page first heads are: "SAVANNAH", "From Sherman's Army Direct", "He Left the Army on the 9th Ten Miles from Savannah", "Sherman Advancing in Attack on the 10th", "The Army in the Highest Spirits", "It has Met No Resistance on the March" and more.
The back page has: "From Kentucky & Tennessee--Jesse's Guerrillas Routed.." with more subheads (see photos). Could this be Jesse James, who was a guerrillas fighter in the Civil War?
Eight pages, minor light foxing, very nice condition.
