President Abraham Lincoln's Message To Congress Broadside "Extra"

July 6, 1861, Newspaper Broadside "Extra" entitled, "Xenia Torch-Light", Xenia, (OH), Very Good.

This is an original, Broadside, "Extra," mneasuring 26" x 10.5" that was published on July 6, 1861 at Xenia, OH detailing the text of President Lincoln's June 5th Message to Congress. In this message, Lincoln goes over the events transpiring since the attack on Fort Sumter, and the commencement of hostilities. He gives a litany of aggressive acts to justify his use of constitutional war powers, including the unpopular suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. This Broadside "Extra" has one news item, the report of Gen. McClellan's victory at Phillippi in Western Virginia. Waterstained along right side, some loss on the right margin and scattered holes, affecting little text. An extremely rare Abraham Lincoln related item.
