March 04, 1861

NEW YORK COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, March 4, 1861

* President-elect Abraham Lincoln
* First Inauguration (early, same day)

* Dawn of the Civil War


Although the front page has some reports on the growing tensions that would soon lead to the Civil War, page 3 column heads reports surrounding the inauguration of Abraham Lincoln.
Page 3 column heads: "THE INAUGURATION" "Gathering of the Clans" "The Procession on its March" "Arrival at the Capitol" with 2nd edition heads: "The Inauguration" "Take Procession Reaches the Capitol" "The Program at the Capitol" "Inauguration Ceremonies". 
Included as well is: "The Inaugural Address of President Lincoln" which, although taking over a full column is not printed here in full, continuing in the "3rd edition" not present here. Still unusual as most newspapers printed the inaugural address in their March 5 editions.
Complete in 4 pages, never bound nor trimmed, very large folio size. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
