Descriptive article on a trip to Colorado... Convention of 'colored men'...
Item # 675684
July 25, 1866
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, July 25, 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 3, which was part of a larger series: "A Trip To Colorado--Crossing the Plains" with a dateline from Denver. The report takes over 1 1/2 columns and is very detailed on what was seen & experienced during the excursion.
Page 4 has a report headed: "A National Convention of Colored Men".
Eight pages, very nice condition.
