Greeley's letter to Lincoln... Battle in Kentucky...

Item # 688011

September 03, 1862

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 3, 1862 

* Battle of Richmond, Kentucky
* Horace Greeley & Abraham Lincoln

Articles include: "The Indian Massacres in Minnesota" "The Case of General Stone" "Mr. Lincoln's Scheme of Emancipation & Colonization" "War News of the Week" "Battle of Chattanooga" "Terrible Battle Near Richmond, Kentucky" "Severe Battle In Kentucky" "Horace Greeley Writes Another Letter to President Lincoln", this taking most of a column. So much more on the Civil War.
Eight pages, loss at a lower corner affects type but not of any mentioned reports. Otherwise very nice.

Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
