Descriptive article on a trip to Colorado... General Custer... Indian issues...
Item # 688324
August 29, 1866
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, Aug. 29, 1866 The conclusion of the Civil War brought with it an interest in expending west, so it would not seem unusual that articles that read like a 19th century travelogue would appear in newspapers of the day.
This issue has one on page 2, which was part of a larger series: "A Trip To Colorado--Mining & Mining Progress" with a dateline from Central City, Colorado. The report takes 1 1/2 columns and is very detailed on what was seen & experienced during the excursion.
Page 3 has a lengthy account of: "General Custar's Testimony" being that of George Armstrong Custer before the Congressional Committee on Reconstruction.
And the ftpg. has: "Indian Affairs" with some interesting detail.
Eight pages, a few small archival mends, nice condition.
