ST. LOUIS GLOBE-DEMOCRAT, Missouri, July 27, 1883

* Miles City, Montana
* Custer County
* Lynching - hanging

This uncommon Midwestern title has news of the day with many advertisements. The front page has an article headed: "VIGILANTES' VENGEANCE" "Bill Rigney Hanged by a Mob at Miles City, Mont." and more. (see)
This issue is not fragile as newsprint back then was made of cotton and linen rags, allowing them to remain very pliable and easy to handle. Complete in 10 pages, minor irregularity along the spine, very nice condition.
