The brutal treatment of Jefferson Davis...

Item # 666549

July 05, 1865

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, July 5, 1865  From just after the end of the Civil War but still with some nice war-related reports including: "Sherman--Then and Now" "The Negro At Home" "Brutal Treatment of Mr. Jefferson Davis..." "Vermont & the Negro" "The Fallen President" and more.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed so it folds out to one large sheet, some loss at the blank spine does not affect 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.
