From Austin, Texas, shortly after the Civil War...



Item # 582719

September 09, 1870

DAILY STATE JOURNAL, Austin, Texas, May 10, 1871 

* Rare Southwestern title 
* Reconstruction era
 

Texas newspapers from so soon after the Civil War are very uncommon. This issue has various local news of the day & many ads (see photos). About half of the page is taken up with reports from the Texas Legislature.

Complete in 8 pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, very nice condition.
