The captured Jefferson Davis en route... Sherman foraging in the Carolinas... Calamity at Mobile, Alabama...
Item # 689852
June 17, 1865
FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, June 17, 1865 The most sought after print is: Fugitive Slaves Escaping to Wilmington, N.C." by Joseph Becker. However, the dramatic double-page foldout: "Awful Calamity at Mobile, Ala. - Scene Among the Ruins after the Explosion of the Ordnance Depot and Magazine", is also quite nice.
The front page has an article headed: "Proclamation of Amnesty", which includes a photo, and also present is: " "Grand Reception to Gen. Sherman, at the Union League Club House, N. Y. "
The additional inside prints include: "Lee's Headquarters", "Feeding the Needy at Charleston, S.C.", "Trial of the Conspirators - Strong Guard Posted in Front of Main Entrance to Penitentiary, Washington", "Sherman's Bummers Foraging in South Carolina", and "Jefferson Davis En Route For Fortress Monroe...", more.
Complete in 16 pages, some rubbing, foxing, and toning, but the most desirable prints are quite nice (see images).
