Item # 691526
November 12, 1864
DAILY DISPATCH, Richmond, Virginia, Nov. 12, 1864
* re. Abraham Lincoln 2nd election victory
A wealth of war-related reports on the front page including: "THE WAR NEWS" with subheads: "From Petersburg--From the Valley--Georgia". Also: "The Yankee Presidential Elections" notes frustration in not knowing the outcome.
Other front page reports: "Additional From the North" "Beast Butler in New York--His Style of Doing Business..." "Confederate Leaders" "The Proposition for Negro Soldiers at the South" and more.
The back page editorial is on the election, beginning: "The re-election of Lincoln--which we presume an accomplished fact--by an electoral vote approaching unanimity, has taken nobody by surprise...".
Complete as a single sheet issue, wide margins, very nice condition.
