Description

From the Columbia Missouri statesman, April 28, 1865. Includes an address by William F. Switzler, resolutions presented by James S. Rollins, and a letter from Missouri Governor Thomas C. Fletcher. Text within black border. A public expresson of grief and mourning and support for the Union, from the heart of Missouri's ""Little Dixie,"" a stronghold of slavery and Southern sympahies, and at the time of Lincoln's assassination a near-lawless region dominated by bushwhackers, vigilantes and state militia men. The proceedings, held in the courthouse in Columbia, included remarks by Col. William F. Switzler (1819-1906), journalist, Missouri historian and editor of the Columbia Missouri Statesman, and a series of resolutions composed by Prof. John Lathrop, president of the meeting, all of which express deep respect for the murdered President and sorrow for the nation's loss, and a firm commitment to the Union. According to Switzler's own ""History of Boone County"" (1882, p. 474) "" the proceedings of this meeting were published in a large costly volume, issued by order of Congress - a distinction not given to any other county meeting in the Union.""
