* Bristol, Tennessee
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: "HIGHLY IMPORTANT NEWS", "Arrest of Messrs. Slidell and Mason, the Rebel Commissioners to Europe", "NEWS FROM THE SOUTH"
"Stampede of the Rebels in Savannah", "The Union Men of Tennessee Reported in Possession of Bristol" and more.
Complete in ten 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.
