THE WORLD, New York, April 27, 1865

Although much of the issue is taken up with the closing events of the Civil War, some inside pages have nice content concerning the Lincoln assassination, including reports: "The Funeral Train" "Reception of the President's Remains in the State Capital" "An Immense Throng in the Streets" "The Lying in State in the Halls of Legislation" "THE ASSASSINS" "Military Search of an Entire Block of Houses in Washington" "Arrest of Junius Brutus Booth" "Speculations as to the Whereabouts of Wilkes Booth" "Is He in Brooklyn?" "The Name Of Booth" and more.
Eight pages, very nice, clean condition.
