A pro-South newspaper in the North...
Item # 666538
June 22, 1864
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, June 22, 1864 Among the articles within are: "President Lincoln in Philadelphia" "Negro Troops" "War News of the Week" "Affairs in Kentucky" "Are You For Peace of War?" and much more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, good 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.
