  • Full Title

    "Assassination of Lincoln"

  • Description

    The Columbia Phoenix, a very pro-Confederate paper, finally confirms that assassination of Lincoln and clearly does not mourn that loss. The writers state of the victims, "They deserved their fate--we may say, provoked it--and we only wonder that something of the kind did not take place long ago."
