Item # 687239
December 04, 1861
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Dec. 4, 1861
* President Abraham Lincoln
* 1st State of the Union Address
* Best publication to be had ?
Most of page 2 is taken up with: "The President's Message" being the annual state-of-the-union address of the President to Congress, signed in type at its conclusion: Abraham Lincoln.
Logically, much of his focus is on the on-going Civil War and its progress, although there is much more about the state of the nation. Page 3 has an editorial headed: "The President's Message".
Terrific to have Lincoln's message in a newspaper from the city where the address was given.
Four pages, nice condition.
