August 24, 1864
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 24, 1864
* Battle of Mobile Bay, Alabama
* Rear Admiral David G. Farragut
Among the articles within: "The Armistice Trick" "Official Report of the Fight in Mobile Bay" is signed in type: D. G. Farragut; "Gen. Sherman on Recruiting in the Rebel States" "What Was Written Before the War Commenced" "A Monstrous Confession of Incompetence to Govern!" 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.
