Death of President Polk, in a Washington newspaper...



Item # 673988

June 23, 1849

THE DAILY UNION, Washington, D.C., June 23, 1849 

* James K. Polk death
* Best title to be had ?


All columns on all 4 pages are black-bordered for the report which appears on pg. 3 headed: "Death of Ex-President Polk...". Page 3 also has a letter "From California" concerning the Gold Rush & the success--or lack of it--among many there.
Always nice to have a Presidential death report in a newspaper from the nation's capital.
Four pages, some small tears at margins and some small archival mends, good condition.
