Rare CONFEDERATE First Battle of Bull Run Civil War 1861 New Bern NC Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 392549065029

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: 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.

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 ... See More
