Statement on Jefferson Davis...

Item # 633687

March 28, 1878

THE AMERICAN SOCIALIST, Oneida New York, March 28, 1878 An inside page features a small report on Jefferson Davis "Jefferson Davis lives in Memphis, Tenn. He is said to be very thin, and to look very old and broken... But did you ever think what a pair of skinny invalids that Confederacy had to preside over it?"  This is a small size newspaper from the famous Oneida Community in New York, an early "commune" in experimental living. Various religiously-themed content but a bit of reporting of news of the day as well.
Complete in 8 pages 11 1/2 by 16 inches, nice condition.
