Baltimore slaves set free... Lincoln's proclamation making Nevada a State... Reason for the war...
Item # 683602
November 03, 1864
SACRAMENTO DAILY UNION, California, November 3, 1864 Page 2 has the small but historic announcement: "Slaves Set Free In Baltimore", which includes in part: "The Post's special dispatch says: The slaves were set free yesterday in Baltimore, in pursuance of an order of the Court, under the new Constitution of Maryland."
Page 2 has the proclamation by President Lincoln declaring Nevada's admission to The Union as a new state, signed in block type: "Abraham Lincoln, By the President."
Other articles include the interesting "The New Agitation in the South - Slavery as Well as Separation the Ultimate Object of the Rebellion", "The freedmen's Colony on Roanoke Island", "The Colored People's Convention at Syracuse", and more.
Complete in 4 pages, a bit of light browning in the upper left corner, but overall good.
