909 The New York Times

37.50

 September 15, 1865. Trial of Andersonville’s Captain Wirz delayed again because of his “severe nervous prostration.” The Military Commission hearing the trial is apprised of his condition. This is a great paper for details of the South’s rebuilding after the war with stories about reconstruction in South Carolina, the general condition in the “rebel” states and feared speculation that there will be another “rebel oligarchy now conspiring to hoist itself into power.” A number of southern leaders and officers are reported to have taken exile in Canada and Mexico; strained American-British relations. Lots of interesting railroad, steamship and financial news and many ads both looking for employment and looking to hire. A good picture of the country trying to regain some semblance of normalcy some five months after the war’s end. An eight-page paper in excellent condition
