James A. Garfield burial in Cleveland, Ohio...

Item # 599394

September 23, 1881

THE CLEVELAND LEADER, Ohio, September 23, 1881 

* President James S. Garfield death 
* Lying in State at Capital 
* Best title to have ?

The front page has one column headings that include:"UNDER THE DOME", "Of The Capital the Dead President Lies in State", "And is Viewed by Thousands of Grief Stricken People", "The Coffin Closed Forever in the Evening", "President Arthur Again Takes Oath of Office" and more. Loads of text, too much to photograph all. Great to have in a Cleveland title, his hometown.

Other news and advertisements of the day throughout. Complete in 8 pages, some margin wear and tear, otherwise good.
