Category: Civil War
Item Number: 6446
Historic Newspaper. Harper's Weekly, June 24, 1865, New York. Cover has large illustration of General Grant meeting with General Scott at West Point. Inside are numerous Civil War illustrations, including a whimsical portrayal of Lincoln as a marble bust with female personifications of liberty, justice and victory (or possibly the union?) around him. Liberty has her foot on the back of what appears to be a white slaveholder. To Lincoln's left a slave is in the act of rising up, while broken shackles lie at his feet. Great content articles on the civil war throughout. Minor stains and very small tears around the edges. In very good condition and still very strong for a paper of this age.
