This is an early issue of this newspapers since the Yankees took over the port. Galveston was the site of the last naval battle of the Civil War, as the Confederates surrendered the city on June 2, nearly 2 months after the surrender of Lee to Grant at Appomattox. Not surprisingly much content relates to Reconstruction efforts after the end of the war. The page 2 editorial is headed: "The Provisional Government, What it Is", "News From the Interior", "Additional From the North", "Latest News! - Telegraphic Dispatches" and much more.
Four pages, minor wear, generally nice condition.
