  • Full Title

    Regarding the Death of Abraham Lincoln, Arizona Miner

  • Description

    The Arizona House of Representatives, President of the Council and the Assistant Secretary of the Arizona Territory signed a resolution as a formal expression of regret for the death of President Abraham Lincoln in February 1866. This article is an official recording of the opinion of the people of Arizona almost a year after the event. A copy of the resolution was sent to President Lincoln's family and was published in the Arizona Miner newspaper as well as other journals of the Pacific and Atlantic States. Originally established as a Republican newspaper in 1864 by Territorial Secretary Richard McCormick (nominated by President Lincoln in 1863), the publication grew to become very politically partisan when racist Democrat John H. Marion took over as editor in 1867. Arizona became a state in 1912.
