It has not yet been determined which American newspaper with Sentinel in its name published this broadsheet, though papers in Burlington, Vermont, and Bath, Maine, have both been suggested. Other news of the day is printed on the verso. The most interesting of these reports on the reaction of Gen. Thomas Meagher to the resignation of some of his officers after Gen. McClellan was removed from his command of the Army of the Potomac.
RARE. Apparently unrecorded in OCLC.
