THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Feb. 5, 1862 * Battle of Mill Springs - Kentucky * Pro Confederate publication Content includes: "All About the Fight" "John B. Weller & Uncle Abe" "War News of the Week" "The Battle of Fishing Creek" "Regimental Report of the Action of the 2nd Minnesota Reg." "Insolence of the Negroes in Kentucky" "Death of Zollicoffer--How Killed..." "A Scene After the Battle" and much more. Eight pages, nice condition. Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
