  1. 150 years ago today . . . in the news . . . [FAYETTEVILLE, ARK.] THE ARKANSIAN. A Southern Churchwoman's View of Slavery.

  2. 150 years ago today . . . in the news . . . Richmond Daily Dispatch.. We observed, while on a visit to a lady friend, a bonnet and dress of Georgia Linsey and cotton, designed for the daughter of one of our leading secessionists. . . .

  3. 150 years ago today . . . in Houston County, Texas . . . assorted citizens signed and submitted a Petition to Sam Houston . . .
