Item # 673385
April 03, 1865
NEW YORK HERALD, April 3, 1865 This was the day the Confederate capital of Richmond was taken by the Yankees. See the photos for the great front page, featuring a large Civil War map headed: "THE DECISIVE BATTLE OF THE REBELLION" with a subhead, the map showing the Petersburg vicinity.
Almost the entire first column is taken up with nice war-related head including a engraving of a heraldic eagle. The heads include: "VICTORY" "The Battle on Friday" "Important Despatches from Gen. Grant, the President & Secretary Stanton" "Triumphant Success of Our Arms After Three Days Hard Fighting" "Lee Driven Into His Last Line of Works" "Petersburg Virtually Ours" and so much more.
There are also two graphics on pg. 5, one a map headed: "Scene of the Expected Naval Fight" and the other an engraving of the "Rebel Iron Ram Stonewall". Much war reporting on the inside & back pages as well.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed quite nice condition.
