Item # 687250

November 12, 1864


* Abraham Lincoln elected president (2nd term)
* 1st report plus Civil War reporting

 Page 3 has a nice illustration headed: "Prison At Andersonville, Georgia" with related text with one column heads: "Rebel Cruelties To Prisoners" "The Horrors of Andersonville, of Libby Prison, and of Relic Isle" "Plundering, Starving, Freezing and Shooting" "Testimony of Privates, Officers and Surgeons" with the text taking over 4 columns.

Just above this report is a chart of the electoral vote by state, under the heading: "The Grand Result", the text noting: "Our returns justify the conclusion that President Lincoln will receive the Electoral Vote of the following States:".
There are a few editorial reports on the election as well. Complete in 8 pages, never-trimmed margins, nice condition.
