Efforts to get Virginia readmitted to the Union after the Civil War...



Item # 672697

January 22, 1870

NEW YORK TIMES, Jan. 22, 1870  The front page begins with over a column of reporting on the re-admission of Virginia into the Union after the Civil War.
Heads include: "Congress" "Action at Last in the Senate on the Virginia Question" "A Bill for Admission Passed by a Vote of 48 to 10" "Unconditional Admission of the State Denied" and more.
Conditional to all the Confederate states' re-admission to the Union was their passage of the 14th & 15th Amendments to the Constitution.
Eight pages, a few minor binding slits at the blank spine, very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 304 (released for March, 2021)...
