Heading for a Civil War: Southern state prepare to secede...



Item # 656123

December 08, 1860

NEW YORK HERALD, Dec. 8, 1860 

* Abraham Lincoln as president-elect
* Southern secession from the Union
* Pre Civil War tensions over slavery


Among pg. 2 column heads on the Civil War: "THE CRISIS" "Progress of the Secession Movement in the South" "A Dissolution of the Union Apparently Inevitable" "Large Meeting in Vicksburg, Miss." "Separate State Secession Repudiated".
Just a wealth of reporting from the Southern states concerning thoughts on leaving the Union, too much to note here.
Twelve pages, nice condition.
