Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: DAILY PROGRESS, New Bern, North Carolina, August 14, 1861 * Very rare Confederate title from North Carolina Certainly one of the less common titles from the Confederacy, as rarely have I seen it offered.

There is much Civil War reporting in this issue, with a considerable Confederate bias. Among the front page reports are: "Mr. Breckinridge" "Send the 'Progress' To Your Friends in the Camp" "Independence of Missouri Declared--Provisional Declaration from Gov. Jackson" "From Manassas--Prince Napoleon... See More
