Lincoln heads to Washington... Jefferson Davis' inaugural address...
Item # 675346
February 19, 1861
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Feb. 19, 1861 Page 5 has column heads with continued & detailed coverage of Lincoln's trip from his home to the nation's capital: "The President Elect En Route" "The Receptions In This State" "Enthusiasm Of The People" "His Arrival In Albany" "Immense Turnout" "The Speeches" "The Reception In this City" and more.
But perhaps the most notable content is on the back page with: "Inauguration of Jefferson Davis" datelines from Montgomery, Feb. 18. The report has the text of his inaugural address.
Also on the bkpg: "Reception of Mr. Lincoln in the Metropolis" "Vice President Hamlin" "Mr. Lincoln's Reception in Philadelphia" and even more on Lincoln's trip to Washington.
Eight pages, never-trimmed margins, there is mouse-chewing at the spine which does cause some text loss on columns near the spine but fortunately no affect to any mentioned reports.
