The Emancipation Proclamation... Lincoln suspends the Writ of Habeas Corpus...
Item # 689603
September 27, 1862
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, September 27, 1862
* Emancipation Proclamation
* President Abraham Lincoln
Page 2 contains the full texts of the Emancipation Proclamation, perhaps the most significant Presidential pronouncement of the entire Civil War wherein Lincoln declared all slaves free.
Headed: "A Proclamation By the President of the United States" the document begins at the bottom half of the first column and takes the top half of the second column and is signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln.
Just before the Proclamation is a very nice editorial piece on the Emancipation Proclamation and includes portions of the it, including: "...That on the first day of January next all persons held as slaves within any state...shall be thenceforward and forever free."
Additionally, page 4 contains Lincoln's Proclamation suspending the Writ of Habeas Corpus. It also is signed in type by the President: Abraham Lincoln.
Complete in 8 pages, never-trimmed margins, good condition. Terrific to have two notable documents in this famous newspaper.
