Robert E. Lee's last battles...

Item # 666556

August 16, 1865

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 16, 1865  The notable content takes nearly two columns on page 3 headed: "LEE'S LAST BATTLES" "A Personal Photograph-'Uncle Robert' and hiss 'Iron Gray'--Pathetic Parting Scene Between Lee and his Men". The article reflects upon the Surrender to Grant, and "The Scenes Between the General and His Men".
Other end of war content as well.
Eight pages, 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.
