NEW YORK WEEKLY DAY-BOOK CAUCASIAN, May 20, 1865
* re. Jefferson Davis capture
* Rare pro-white title

A decidedly racist newspaper which began well before the Civil War & lasted a few years after. As such their reporting on war events provide a contrasting perspective beyond most other Northern newspapers.
Among the reports found in this issue: "The Assassination Trial" "The Military Court in Washington" "The Evidence Thus Far" "President Johnson Said to Have Been Misled" all taking the full front page.
Inside includes: "Negro Suffrage" "Now the Work Before the Faithful" "Exciting Discussion" "A Voice of Humanity From an Abolitionists" "Capture of Jefferson Davis" "He is On His Way to Washington" with an interesting editorial: "The Capture of Mr. Davis" and more.
Eight pages, nice condition.
