New York: New York Daily News. Very Good. 1863. Newspaper. A complete issue of the New York Weekly News from Saturday, November 28, 1863. Spine edge has chips and tears from having been bound. A few small soil spots on pages, which are folded to show the speech article. The article is almost two full columns of three dispatches from November 19th, headed "From Gettysburg - Dedication of the Soldiers' Cemetery," with an abstract and excerpts of Edward Everett's two-hour oration, comments by Secretary Seward, and the full text of Lincoln's speech. Noted are the weather and enthusiastic responses to the speakers and President Lincoln. Much of the rest of the issue is devoted to news of the Civil War including "The Enemy Falling Back from Chickamoga," Siege of Charleston, "The Designs of the Abolition Radicals," "Alleged Confederate Inhumanity" and more. The parent company of the newspaper is the same New York Daily News in publication today. While other newspapers preceded the New York Weekly News in publication of the Gettysburg Address, any early issue from the New York papers is hard to find in good condition. ; 20 1/2" x 13 1/2"; 8 pp .
