Antique The World New York Newspaper April 25 1865  Lincoln's Funeral Procession

For sale is an antique The World newspaper published in New York on April 25, 1865. This newspaper is intact and is complete with 8 pages detailing President Abraham Lincoln's funeral procession through New York City after his assassination. The paper has articles about guarding of the president's remains due to remaining strife as the Civil War ended. At the publishing of this newspaper, John Wilkes Booth had still not been found. He was found a day later and was shot during attempted capture on April 26, 1865.

The World was began publishing in 1860 and was a widely read newspaper during the Civil War Years. When Joseph Pulitzer bought the newspaper in 1883, it would go down in history for the circulation wars with William Randolph Hearst and his New York Journal-American publication. The sensationalism of that era led to the term "yellow journalism" which is still taught in history classes today.
