Item # 666635

May 04, 1857

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., May 4, 1857 

* Spirit Lake Massacre - Sioux Indians - Iowa

Page 3 has a detailed article: "Capture of An American Slaver" which has much detail on the capture of a slave ship. Great reading.
Also on page 3 is an even lengthier article: "the Indian Difficulties" "Official Account of the Agent of the Sioux Indians" which relates to the infamous Spirit Lake Massacre. This article takes two-thirds of a column.
Four pages, very nice condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
