Robert E. Lee featured on the front page...
Item # 678832
June 04, 1864
THE ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS, England, June 4, 1864
* General Robert E. Lee engraving
* American Civil War
Most of the front page is taken up with a great, full-figure print captioned: "General Robert Edmund Lee, Commander-in-Chief of the Army of the Confederate States of America" with a lengthy page 2 article on him taking over a full column.
Perhaps not surprising that this Confederate-sympathizing newspaper which feature Lee rather than General Grant.
The July 2, 1864 issue of Harper's Weekly would carry this identical print.
Complete in 24 pages, a little spine wear, generally very nice.
