The coal towns of Pennsylvania... Close of the Wirz trial...
Item # 692746
October 15, 1865
NEW YORK TIMES, Oct. 15, 1865
* Mauch Chunk - coal regions
* Henry Wirz - Andersonville trial
Pages 2 and 3 contain an unusually lengthy article on small mining towns in north eastern Pennsylvania, with articles headed: "The Coal Regions--Mines at Jeddo, Ebervale, Harleigh, Minersville..." "Hazletown [Hazleton] and Its Surroundings...Mount Pleasant, Stockton, Ashburton...""Scenery in & Around Mauch Chunk--Its Industry--An Exciting Ride up Mount Pisgah & over the Switchback--The Burning Mountain..." with more. All this text takes nearly four full columns.
The ftpg. has reports on the: "Close of Testimony in the Wirz Trial" "More Dispute About the Rights of Counsel" and more.
Eight pages, a bit irregular at the spine, a printing flaw on the ftpg. affects text in the lower right but no affect to mentioned content.
