Admiral William T. Sampson takes command...

Item # 680888

March 24, 1898

THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, March 24, 1898

* Rear Admiral William T. Sampson
* Takes command of North Atlantic Squadron
* Pre-Spanish-American War - U.S. Navy

The top of the front page has a one column heading: "SAMPSON COMMANDS" 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 4 pages, a few small library stamps within the masthead, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
