A rare Confederate title...
Item # 537792
January 18, 1862
WESTERN SENTINEL, Winston, North Carolina, January 18, 1862 This is a very rare title from the Confederacy. According to Brigham only four institutions in the United States have any holdings of this title from the Civil War, most just a few scattered issues. The American Antiquarian Society has no issues recorded from this era.
Nice content in this issue, as the ftpg. has: "Letter from G. W. Brownlow--His Treatment" while in prison (see photos). Also: "The Missouri Swamp Fox which is on General M. Jeff. Thompson; plus: "Bishop Hughes in Favor of the Confederate States". Pg. 2 has more Civil War news with: "The Election: "Departure of Troops" "The News" which has many war reports; also: "Northern News" "Then and Now" "Re-Enlistment" and "Drafting Soldiers". The war reporting continues on pg. 3 with: "Latest News--Suspension of Yankee Banks" "French Man of War Fired Into" "From the West" "The Financial Bull Run" "A Consoling Belief" "Prosperity of the South" "A Yankee Sermon" and more. The war coverage continues on the bkpg. as well with: "Why the Federals do not Advance in South Carolina" among other items. Ads on the bkpg. as well. Complete in 4 pages, scattered foxing throughout, a minor pg. 2 archival mend near the bottom, generally quite nice. Measures about 11 1/2 by 17 1/2 inches.
An opportunity for not only a very rare Confederate title, but one with extensive war content.
