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 Last of the Rebel Strongholds on the Atlantic in Our Hands", "Precipitate Flight of the Rebel Garrison", "Great Importance of the Victory", "FROM THE SOUTH", "Charleston Nothing but an Empty Shell", "Military Execution" and more.
This paper is complete in eight pages. It 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. It has minor printing flaw, but is otherwise in nice condition.
