    Description

    New York Times April 17, 1865: Lincoln Assassination. 4 pp., 15 3/4" x 21 1/2". This newspaper contains black "mourning rules" on 4 pages, "stacked" front page headlines, and very long detailed news coverage of the ASSASSINATION of PRESIDENT ABRAHAM LINCOLN as well as the INAUGURATION of ANDREW JOHNSON as the new President. A most interesting highlight in this issue is a long front page eyewitness account headlined: "Last Moments of the President" describing the events that took place from the time of Lincoln's assassination through the last hours of Lincoln's life, including the moment he succumbed to John Wilkes Booth's bullet.
