Lincoln's Proclamation calling for more soldiers...

Item # 666541

July 27, 1864

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, July 27, 1864 

* Abraham Lincoln call for troops
* Pro Confederate publication

Among the articles on the ftpg. are: "President Lincoln Figuring on the Peace Question!--The Negro Only in the Way!" "Correspondence the Peace Proposition" includes letters signed by Horace Greeley and one by Abraham Lincoln.
Articles within: "An Infamous Proclamation" "War News of the Week" and: "President's Proclamation--500,000 Men called For" which is signed in type: Abraham Lincoln.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, various foxing, and loss at the blank spine fortunately does not affect any text.

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.
