[POEM, author unknown]
THE bloodY SHIRT
Bucyrus, Ohio: the Bucyrus Ohio Journal[inked as such in a contemporaneous hand]; 1 sheet broadside (printed only on 1 side of the sheet of paper); size is 6 x 7 3/8 inches. No writing on the verso.
A heart-rending (and, frankly, scary) poem of approximately 80 lines telling the plight of a recently freed black African American slave / freedman as he runs for his life from a southern lynch mob. VERY EARLY use of the reconstruction era political term "The bloody Shirt" which, according to Britannica, did not come into general usage until the 1868 presidential political campaign.
A telling piece of history.
I apologize but due to recent machinations by (they frequently like to "fix" things that ain't "broken"), the links shown above may not take you to the specific subject areas shown but will, rather, take you to my entire store where you will now have to do your own searches for those very specific locations and subjects :-{
original, presumably to 1865 just after the war ended as the inked date is written in old ink in a contemporaneous hand; 1/3 inch tear at bottom edge; 3 shorter tears to left & right margins (none of which affect the text); unobjectionable pencil lines in the right margin; a few old folds and wrinkles (see the scan of the verso to see these best) else VG . . . . Remember that the penny is not attached to the item. It is put on the scanner bed merely to protect the uniqueness or near uniqueness of an image so that the high buyer gets an item that has not been copied via someone's computer. The Abraham Lincoln penny (which I occasionally use on photos, broadsides and manuscripts) DOES NOT hide any faults or any damage! (the fine print ... [sigh] ... but please read :-)
