Descriptive article on a trip to Colorado... Indian issues...
Item # 675682
August 15, 1866
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, Aug. 15, 1866 The conclusion of the Civil War brought with it an interest in expending west, so it would not seem unusual that articles that read like a 19th century travelogue would appear in newspapers of the day.
This issue has one on page 2, which was part of a larger series: "A Trip To Colorado--Entering the Rock Mountains" with a dateline from Central City, Colorado. The report takes a full column and is very detailed on what was seen & experienced during the excursion.
The front page has a report: "Indian Affairs" with reports from Leavenworth, Kansas, noting in part: "...information from a brother of one of the massacred men, that the Indians have murdered six men in the vicinity of Fort Laramie. The Indian war has commenced again...The Indians attacked a wagon train..." and much more.
Eight pages, a few minor mends, nice condition.
