Jefferson Davis is captured...

Item # 653997

May 14, 1865

NEW YORK TIMES, May 14, 1865 

* Jefferson Davis captured (1st report)
* Irwinville, Irwin County, Georgia

A very historic issue with larger heads than typical: "GLORIOUS ! " "JEFF. DAVIS CAPTURED" "Official Announcement by Secretary Stanton" "Davis and His Family Surprised at Irwinsville" "The Fourth Michigan Cavalry are the Fortunate boys" "They Surround the Arch Rebel at Daylight on Wednesday" "Nearly All of Davis' Personal Staff Captured" with more. Nice to have in this venerable newspaper title.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, very nice condition.
