A slave mother's attempted escape... General Burnside resigns...
Item # 675553
January 29, 1863
NEW YORK TRIBUNE, Jan. 29, 1863 Page 3 has a short, but moving account: "Fearful Struggle for Freedom by a Slave Mother", followed by details of her attempted escape with her child. See the image for a heart-wrenching quote.
Page 5 has: "Gen. Burnside Tenders His Resignation", followed by, "The President Declines to Accept It."
Among the front page one column heads on the Civil War are: "The Rebel Defense of Vicksburg", "Gen. Joe Johnston Heavily Re-enforcing the Position", "Gen. Grant Nearly Ready to Move", "Gen. McClernand & Com. Porter Within 20 Miles of Vicksburg" & much more.
Eight pages, typical light foxing, but overall nice condition.
