THE NEW YORK HERALD, August 26, 1862

* Rebel invasion (Washington D.C.)
* Culpepper VA Virginia
* John Morgan in Kentucky

A genuine Civil War newspaper from Abraham Lincoln's administration with one column headlines which include: "Movements In Front Of Washington", "Successful Withdrawal of Gen Pope's Army of the North Bank of Rappahannock", "Our Present Line Of Action", "Skirmishing With The Rebels", "The Retreat From Culpepper", "Capture of an Entire Rebel Brigade"
"The Bandit Morgan In Kentucky", "Interesting From New Orleans", and more.

Complete in eight pages. This issue is not fragile as newsprint from this era had high cotton/linen content allowing them to remain pliable and easy to handle. Minor light foxing, very nice condition.
