Fugitive slave case...

Item # 593610

June 18, 1862

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, June 18, 1862  The front page has a report headed: "The Rendition of Nicholas Bray's Slave Woman". This is an interesting fugitive slave report, noting: "Gov. Stanly was that Bray...said that one of his female slave had been enticed away by our troops & was held against her will...the warrant empowering Bray to search for the slave was issued; she was found & brought to Gov. Stanly...that night a party of three white Massachusetts soldiers & two Negroes went to Bray's house, burnt his fences, and abducted the women by force..." with more. Shown is just a small portion of an article taking close to one-third of the front page which has heads; "The Other Side of the Stanly-Colyer Matter--Explanations of the Military Governor--He Will Not Enforce the Fugitive Slave Law--A Plain Statement of Facts".
Eight pages, nice condition.
