The next time someone says, “it took 2 1/2 years for news of the Emancipation Proclamation to reach Texas”, point to this replica of Houston’s Tri-Weekly Telegraph, published October 17, 1862.  That was ten weeks BEFORE President Lincoln issued the final version of his historic proclamation!  Column four includes the entire preliminary proclamation.  This 24″x36″ frameable poster is a great gift for history buffs, Juneteenth celebrants, collectors of African American folklore, and know-it-all friends.
