Abe Lincoln makes his way to Washington, D.C...

Item # 688034

February 16, 1861

NEW YORK HERALD, Feb. 16, 1861 

* President elect Abraham Lincoln
* Journey to the White House for inauguration

There is much on the President-elect, Abraham Lincoln, as he makes his way from Springfield to Washington for his inauguration.
Page 2 has: 'Mr. Lincoln For Washington" "Occurrences at Home Prior to the President's Departure" "Progress of the President Elect Towards the White House" "Cheers, Salutes & Bouquets" "Old Abe's Speech at Pittsburg" and page 3 has "The Journey of the President Elect" "Important Speeches of Mr. Lincoln on the Cris & the Tariff Question" "The Arrival & Reception aet Cleveland" "Incidents Along the Route" and more. Quite a bit of reporting.
Twelve pages, never bound nor trimmed, some loss at the blank margins, and some brown staining but causing no loss of readability.
