Lincoln's Proclamation calling for 300,000 soldiers...

Item # 681896

October 19, 1863

SPRINGFIELD DAILY REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, Oct. 19, 1863

* President Abraham Lincoln
* Proclamation for more soldiers

The back page begins with: "News From Washington - A Call for Three Hundred Thousand Men" with the full text of the Proclamation signed in type: Abraham Lincoln.
Page 2 has a nice editorial on the Proclamation: "Three Hundred Thousand More--Volunteer or be Drafted" which is an interesting perspective on Lincoln's need for more soldiers.
There is much Civil War reporting including: "A Letter from Admiral Farragut - False And Malicious Charges Against Him" signed in type: D. G. Farragut
Four pages, very nice condition.
