Idaho Statesman, April 25, 1865.

  • Full Title

    Idaho Statesman, April 25, 1865.

  • Description

    This is an extra evening edition of the Idaho Statesmen published as soon as reports of the assassination reached the state. Reads, "The details, which we present to our readers in this extra, constitute a chapter of horrors that neither history nor fiction can parallel. The murder of Caesar by Brutus, the assassination of Henry the Fourth by Ravaignac, sink into insignificance when compared with the terrible daring and fearful coolness which characterizes the perpetration of these deeds."
