Horrors of Camp Chase & Andersonville...
Item # 680736
September 27, 1865
THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 27, 1865 Most of the front page is taken up with a quite lengthy report headed: "The Horrors Of Camp Chase" "A Companion To Andersonville" with many subheads.
Other reports include: "Infamous!" "A Two-Penny Tyrant" "Mill On Negro Suffrage" "The Confederate Leaders in Texas" "The Rebellious Radicals" and much more.
Eight pages, very nice condition.
Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
