Very Rare & Famous WALLPAPER Vicksburg MS Mississippi 1863 Civil War Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 390978774003

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE DAILY CITIZEN, Vicksburg, Mississippi, July 2 (4), 1863 A fascinating newspaper and arguably the most famous of any newspaper printed on Confederate soil, not just for being printed on the back of wallpaper (many others were as well) but because of the circumstances which surrounded the creation of this issue.
