Wisconsin joins the Union as the 30th state...
Item # 662644
June 29, 1848
NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., June 29, 1848
* Wisconsin gains statehood
The back page has: "An Act for the admission of the State of Wisconsin into the Union" which takes over half a column of text (see for portions). At the bottom it notes the Act was "Approved, May 29, 1848" which is the recorded date of Wisconsin joining the Union. Great to have this official report in this Washington, D.C. newspaper, the mouthpiece of the federal government.
Four pages, great condition.
