From Eastern Illinois...

October 07, 1876

IROQUOIS COUNTY TIMES, Watseka, Illinois, Oct. 7, 1876 

* Rare publication from the Midwest

From a somewhat small town (pop. 5,200) in Eastern Illinois. Various news and ads of the day including: "Nebraska as She Really Is" "Ash Grove's Third Tragedy - Two Prominent Men Suspected of Murder or Manslaughter" & much more.
Also of interest is most of a column taken up with: "Fighting The Sioux" which is from not long after the Custer Massacre with mention of General Crook, etc.
Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, a small wear hold in the masthead, good condition.
