On Fremont's controversial emancipation proclamation...

Item # 675388

September 06, 1861

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Sept. 6, 1861  Among the inside page column heads on the Civil War are: "THE WAR FOR THE UNION" "Gov. Gamble & Gen. Fremont" "Army Appointments" "Death of A Leading Rebel" "Jeff. Davis's Death Believed in Louisville" "Condition of the Rebel Army" "Bombardment of Galveston".
Page 6 has a report concerning: "Fremont's Proclamation--Itrs Reception in the North-West--New Era in the War--25,000 Slaves Declared Free..." and more. This was a very controversial proclamation by General Fremont, setting free all slaves in Missouri without proper authority, causing Lincoln to rescind it and leading to Fremont being relieved of his command.
Eight pages, never-trimmed margins, very nice condition.
