Item # 654794
April 06, 1864
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, April 6, 1864 Among the front page reports are: "Mixing The White and Black Races in Ohio" which takes 2 1/2 columns. Also: "A Letter From the Army" "Massa Lincoln" "Mr. Lincoln's Re-Election and Rebel Discouragement" and more.
Other items inside include: "War News of the Week" "Gen. Banks's Order" "The German Movement for Fremont--Progress of the War Against Lincoln" "John Morgan's
Brother Gives an Account of His Treatment in the Ohio Penitentiary--Shocking & Disgraceful Barbarity to Prisoners of War" and so much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, some 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 insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
