Unbound. Broadside. Measuring 12" x 17.5". Old folds, tiny tears and nicks, light foxing, sound and very good. Estate of Tunis offered for sale in the waning days of the Civil War. Nehemiah Camp Tunis was a New Jersey-born retailer of liquor living in Williamstown, Kentucky, near the northern border of the state. He registered for the Federal military draft in 1863 at the age of 41, and died on January 24, 1865, two weeks before this broadside was published. His wife, Mary Patience Kerr Tunis, a dozen years younger than her husband, served as executrix of what was his substantial estate. Her co-executor was likely her father or brother. A more than usually interesting estate broadside, advertising a prodigious amount of Kentucky whiskey. We could locate no other copies of this broadside.
