Criticizing Lincoln's state-of-the-union address...

Item # 626251

December 12, 1861

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 12, 1861  This was an anti-war newspaper that insisted that slavery should not be abolished, so much of its content has an anti-North bias.
Among the articles are a lengthy ftpg. report: "The President's Message" which is commentary on Lincoln's recent state-of-the-union address. Most of pg. 2 has: "Report of the Secretary of War". Other items include: "Horrors of Civil War in Missouri" "Brother Against Brother" "A Declaration of Independence - Cabal Against the President" "Criticisms of Republican Papers on President Lincoln's Message" "Curious Letter from Gen. Beauregard" is signed by him in type: G. T. Beauregard.
Eight pages, never-trimmed margins, scattered foxing, nice condition.

Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
