This is coolbert:
As seen the Chicago Tribune from this last Sunday, the banner headlines as were the case one-hundred-fifty years ago.
That conflict known variously as the American Civil War, the War between the States, the War of Northern Aggression, the Rebellion of the Slaveholder finally after almost four years of continuous warfare coming to a climatic end.
"THE CIVIL WAR ENDS"
Thanks in all cases to Stephan Benzkofer.
"By spring 1865, the outcome of the bloody Civil War was no longer in doubt, and the Tribune claimed the end of the rebellion was nigh. But exactly when that would come seemed frustratingly distant."
At least until April of 1865!!
April 14, 1865.
"NEWS BY TELEGRAPH."
"THE END OF THE WAR."
"The Draft Stopped and No More Recruiting. "
"TRADE RESTRICTIONS RESUMED."
"The expenses of the Army and Numbers of Officers to be Reduced."
"THE NAVY DEPARTMENT REDUCING ITS FORCES."
"Lee Going to Johnston to Stop Further Bloodshed."
"REPORTED DEFEAT OF JOHNSTON'S FORCES."
"The Capture of Selma - - Twenty-three Pieces of Artillery Taken."
"Gen. Grant's Headquarters in Washington."
"Interesting Details of Lee's Surrender."
"VIRGINIA TRYING TO COME BACK INTO THE UNION."
"Louis Napoleon Reported Dangerously Ill."
"The cruel war is well nigh over. The Republic has vindicated its integrity. The union is safe."
One more last incident yet remains to mark the end of the war! Good Friday 1865!
