1899 Henry Ware Lawton killed...
Item # 680154
December 19, 1899
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, Dec. 19, 1899
* U.S. General Henry Ware Lawton killed
* Battle of Paye - Philippine-American War
The top of the front page has a two column headline: "GEN. LAWTON KILLED SHOT IN THE BREAST" with subheads. (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 8 pages, a few small library stamps near the top of the front page, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
