Rare NEW BERN NC North Carolina CONFEDERATE 1861 Civil War Newspaper w/ BULL RUN


eBay Fixed Price Item # 391000083981

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: DAILY PROGRESS, New Bern, North Carolina, July 20, 1861 * Very rare Confederate title * First Battle of Bull Run * Manassas, Virginia Certainly one of the less common titles from the Confederacy, as rarely have I seen it offered. This coastal town didn't remain Confederate for very long as it fell to General Burnside in April, 1862. So truly "Confederate" issues can be difficult to come by. Among the front page items are: "Two Men Killed" "The Dover Meeting" & other reports, however certainly the most notable content is the reporting on the first major battle of the Civil War: "Battle Opened at Manassas" "The Lincolnites Attempt to Cross at Bull's Run!" "They are Three Times Repulsed wi... See More

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. This newspaper was edited and published by J. M. Swords. As the Union siege of this strategic city wore on, his supply of paper ran out, so the publisher resorted to the use of wallpaper, as did several other Southern editors during the rebellion. On this substitute Swords printed the following dates: June 16, 18, 20, 27, 30, and July 2, 1863. Each was a single sheet, four columns wide,... See More

Very Rare CONFEDERATE Fredericksburg VA Virginia Vol. 1 Civil War 1862 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 390954745528

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE CHRISTIAN BANNER, Fredericksburg, Virginia, May 31, 1862 * Very rare Confederate title This is certainly one of the more rare newspapers from this Confederate state, and is the volume 1, number 4 issue. Fredericksburg was occupied by federal forces several times during the war, this period being one of them as the news in this issue have an obviously pro-federal slant. An article on the back page notes that this newspaper was suspended on May 9, 1861 because: "...the secession flag...was waving over our city..." but then it resumed publication May 9, 1862 because: "...today the American flag...now floats proudly over us...", with much more on why they resurrected the newspaper (see).

Rare LITTLE ROCK Arkansas CONFEDERATE Civil War Gettysburg Prelude1863 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 390950053018

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: ARKANSAS STATE GAZETTE, Little Rock, July 4, 1863 * Very rare Confederate title I believe this to be the very first time in 37 years we have been able to offer a Confederate newspaper from the state of Arkansas. And as an added bonus, it is printed on "necessity" paper. With most of the paper mills in the North, many newspapers from the Confederacy exhausted their supply of newsprint and were forced to be creative in publishing their daily edition, many reducing their size to single sheet and often replacing a full banner masthead with a more space-saving one at the top of the first column. Some were forced to print on any paper which was available, with some of the more curious on the back ... See More

Rare CONFEDERATE New Orleans LA Louisiana ABE LINCOLN Civil War 1861 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 390676688723

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Louisiana, Feb. 27, 1861 * Rare title from the deep South Truly Confederate newspapers from New Orleans are very difficult to find, as Admiral Farragut entered the mouth of the Mississippi in mid-April, 1862 and finally took New Orleans on April 28. Shortly thereafter Benjamin Butler moved in and took control of the city, it surrendering without a fight. So "Confederate" issues from New Orleans are limited to those published between Louisiana's secession from the Union on January 26, 1861 and the end of April, 1862, just a brief 15 month period. Among the articles are: "Alabama & the Forts" "Letter From Montgomery" "The southern Confederacy--A French View" "T... See More
