August 24, 1884
ARIZONA GAZETTE, Phoenix, Aug. 28, 1884 This is a territorial newspaper from 28 years before statehood.
The front page has a report headed: "A Reward" from Tennessee, noting: "Four leading Mormon elders to-day presented a sworn petition to Gov. Bate asking that a reward be offered for the apprehension of those engaged in the Lewis county massacre...", being what is known as the Cane Creek Massacre, Tennessee's Mormon Massacre.
Four pages, browning at the margins, rejoined at the spine. Should be handled carefully.
