In the North, but pro-South...
Item # 666506
October 22, 1862
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 22, 1862 Among the articles are: "Negro Colonization" "Where Are We Drifting?" "All the Blame on Mr. Lincoln" "Negroes Trying to Get Into Indiana" "The Raid Upon Chambersburg" "The Boston Abolitionists Denying to a White Man Freedom of Speech" "A Degrading Spectacle--White Men Working Negro Help to Save the Union" & so much more.
Eight pages, very 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.
