Nebraska joins the Union: the official Proclamation...

Item # 688849

March 02, 1867

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., March 2, 1867 

* Nebraska statehood achieved
* President Andrew Johnson
* From the nation's capital

The top of page 2 has a very historic: "Proclamation" signed in type by the President, Andrew Johnson, for admitting Nebraska into the Union as the 37th state. The Proclamation is dated March 1, 1867, agreeing with the historic of the admission of the state. Terrific to have this in a newspaper from the nation's capital.
Page 2 begins with a curious editorial headed: "The New Constitution - The Subversion Bill" which begins: "A majority of the members of the present Congress have invited the President to unite with them in a project for abolishing the Republic of the United States..." with much more taking over a full column.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine, nice condition. Folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
