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: "THE SOUTH", "Rebel News, Rumors and Speculations", "THE MILITARY SITUATION", "Sherman's Victorious March Toward Richmond", "THE QUESTION OF ARMING SLAVES", "The Negro the Only Hope of the South", "THE ARMY OF THE POTOMAC" 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. Minor light staining, otherwise nice condition.
