A trip from the Missouri to the Pacific...

Item # 675687

May 05, 1866

NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, May 5, 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: "FROM THE MISSOURI TO THE PACIFIC" with subheads: "Leaving San Francisco--Steamer Day--The New China Steamers--The Sacramento--The Fire Drill--California Passengers...Whales--Life on Shipboard--Acapulco..." and more. with a dateline from Panama, New Grenada. The report takes close to 2 columns and is very detailed on what was seen & experienced during the excursion.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
