A trip from the Missouri to the Pacific...
Item # 675692
February 03, 1866
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, Feb. 3, 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 5, which was part of a larger series: "FROM THE MISSOURI TO THE PACIFIC" with subheads: "Virginia, Montana--Its Appearance and Population--Life at a Hurdy Gurdy House--Starting for Helena--A Rough Awakening--Hot Springs--Warm Climate of the Pacific Coast--Immense Nuggets--Helena--Expenses of Living--Outlets from Montana via the Plains--A New Territory..." and more. The dateline is from Helena, Montana.
The report takes over a full column and is very detailed on what was seen & experienced during the excursion.
Eight pages, a bit of mild foxing, nice condition.
