Close to the outbreak of the Civil War...



Item # 693803

April 10, 1861

NEW YORK HERALD, April 10, 1861  

* Civil War beginning soon (2 days away)
* Fort Sumter about to be attacked
* History about to be made


The entire front page is taken up with ads, while page 2 features a nice map headed: "The City of Charleston And Its Defences. Plan of the Harbor, Showing Fort Sumter and Other Forts, the City and Suburbs" with various related headlines taking the first column.
Twelve pages, light damp staining at the top, minimal foxing, mostly nice.
