The Battle of Gettysburg...



Item # 671506

July 03, 1863

NEW YORK HERALD, July 3, 1863 

* Battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
* Robert E. Lee's Northern invasion


A terrific front page with great and graphic coverage of the first day's battle at the very significant Battle of Gettysburg.
The ftpg. includes two war-related maps headed: "The Battle Of Gettysburg. Scene of the Battle of Wednesday, July 1--The Cavalry Fight." and the other headed: "Our Occupation of Carlisle, Pa. The Barracks and Gas Works Burned by the Rebels". 
Plus the ftpg. features very nice first column heads: "THE INVASION" "Desperate Battle at Gettysburg, Pa. on Wednesday" "The First & Eleventh Corps Engaged with Longstreet and Hill" "Death of General Reynolds, Commander of the First Corps" "Heavy Losses of the Eleventh Army Corps" "Reports of a Fierce Battle and Union Victory Yesterday" "Interesting Accounts of the Recent Cavalry Battles" "The Battle of Gettysburg" and a bit more. The ftpg. also has two-thirds of a column taken up with: "The Casualties" from the Battle of Gettysburg.  There is additional Civil War reporting on the inside and back pages as well.
A great issue on Gettysburg, particularly with a nice map headed at the top with the words everyone wants to frame: "The Battle of Gettysburg".
Eight pages, irregular at the spine margin from disbinding, with a few indents which affect some words. Otherwise the issue is in nice condition.
