Henderson, Kentucky, from the Civil War...

Item # 682760

December 11, 1862

HENDERSON WEEKLY REPORTER, Kentucky,  Dec. 11, 1862

* Very rare publication
* Neutral stance to Civil War

From a state that chose to be neutral during the Civil War but remained a part of the Union, there were, as a result, supporters of both sides. This newspaper, judging by its reporting and other content, seems to have remained neutral.
The front page begins with over 2 columns taken up with a: "Synopsis of the President's Message" referring to the state-of-the-union address of Abraham Lincoln. Logically, much of this concerns the Civil War. The front page also has: "The Southern Army--Another Appeal for the Army".
Pages 2, 3 & 4 have various war reports headed: "The News!" "Desperate Fight in North-West Arkansas - Battlefield Near Fayetteville, Ark." "Blockade Off Wilmington, N.C."A Stringent Order" signed in type by: U.S. Grant; "British Aid for the Rebels" "From Nashville--Another Disgrace" "Southern News" "The Mississippi Canal at Vicksburg Destroyed--A Federal Policy" "Interesting Southern News" "A Scheme of Jeff. Davis to Break the Blockade..." "The Negro Influx--Be Warned in Time" and more.
Included as well is: "Stonewall Jackson A Poet" featuring a poem written by him during the Mexican War.
Four pages, the entire issue has a clear, archival overlay which does not affect readability, very nice condition.
A very rare title from the Civil War.
