Item # 666558

September 13, 1865

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 13, 1865 

* re. Confederate General Stonewall Jackson's death

The notable content takes most of the back page, headed: "STONEWALL JACKSON'S DEATH" "The Last Hours of the First Executive Officer--How He Was Wounded", has incredible detail on the situation at the battle of Chancellorsville.
Other end of war content as well including: "A Meeting of 900 Freedmen Vote to Return to Their Masters" and more.
Eight pages, never bound nor  trimmed, 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.
