The most notable content within this issue is the very brief, but historic page 3 report of the death of Commodore (Admiral) Uriah P. Levy, the first U.S. Jewish Commodore, War of 1812 hero, and credited for abolishing the disciplinary procedure of flogging.
Among the war-related column heads inside are: "THE WAR FOR THE UNION" "ANOTHER GREAT BATTLE" "Gen. Shield's First Victory" "Jackson, Smith, And Longstreet Routed" "THE SIEGE OF ISLAND TEN" and more with back page map headed: "The Attack Upon Island No. 10".
Eight pages, a bit irregular at the spine, good condition.
