Jefferson Davis is inaugurated as President...

Item # 682679

February 25, 1862

NEW YORK HERALD, Feb. 25, 1862 

* Jefferson Davis inauguration
* President of the Confederacy
* Nashville, Tennessee map

The front page features a nice map of: "THE CITY OF NASHVILLE" which includes the city streets.
But of most significance is the front page report headed: "Inauguration of Jeff. Davis as President of the Bogus Confederacy" "Scenes and Ceremonies of the Occasion" and "Inaugural Address of Davis". This coverage takes two full columns on the ftpg. Other Civil War reporting on the front page and inside pages.
Eight pages, most of the issue is toned, a damp stain to the upper right, otherwise nice.
