Price: 95.00 USD
Madison: Wisconsin State Journal, 1868 September 24 (Volume XVI, Number 9). Folio. 4pp. Very good. Slight binding traces along fold, else white and clean and strong. Handsome, bright issue of Wisconsin's official state paper, with one of the front page columns devoted to "A Visit to Galena -- Gen. Grant at His Home." Grant was clearly full steam into his first presidential bid: the second page featuring a list of "Republican Nominations," headed in large type "For President -- Gen. U.S. GRANT." Other political tidbits include the formation of "Grant Clubs" at various locales, "Mrs. Lincoln and her son Tad passed through Pittsburgh, on Monday, for Ohio," etc. Interesting atmosphere content and the expected boilerplate advertisements for patent medicines.
