"Skirmish at Savannah, Mo., and Defeat of the Rebels" "Expected Battle At Cairo" and more. (see)
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 spine wear, nice condition.
