The Emancipation Proclamation...
Item # 679150
September 23, 1862
NEW YORK DAILY TRIBUNE, September 23, 1862 Page 4 contains the full texts of the Emancipation Proclamation, perhaps the most significant Presidential pronouncement of the entire Civil War wherein Lincoln declared all slaves free. Headed: "A Proclamation By the President of the United States" the document begins at the bottom half of the second column and takes the top half of the third column and is signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln.
Just before the Proclamation is a very nice editorial piece on the Emancipation Proclamation and includes portions of the it, including: "...That on the first day of January next all persons held as slaves within any state...shall be thenceforward and forever free." (see for the full report).
Eight pages, very nice condition. Terrific to have this significant document in this famous newspaper.
