THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York City, January 17, 1865
* Battle of Fort Fisher at Wilmington, North Carolina
This genuine newspaper has a wealth of Civil War reporting from during Abraham Lincoln's administration. Among the one column headlines on the Civil War are: "WILMINGTON", "The Attack on Fort Fisher Renewed", "REAPPEARANCE OF THE FLEET", "Fine Weather and Smooth Water", "Rebel Accounts from Wilmington", "MORE PEACE TALK", "Return of Mr. Blair to Washington" and more.
Complete in eight 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. Nice condition.
