The Yankee paper in a partially Confederate city...
Item # 586654
October 26, 1861
THE LOUISVILLE DAILY JOURNAL, Kentucky, Oct. 26, 1861
* Rare Civil War title (Union)
* In a partially Confederate city
Louisville is difficult to categorize as Union or Confederate during the Civil War as, depending on the time, there were factions within the city supporting both. To placate both sides the two leading newspapers took their stands: the "Courier" was very much pro-Confederate & the "Journal" was more pro-Union. This is the Yankee-leaning newspaper.
Among the articles in this issue are: "The Battle for Bread" "Letter From Camp at Nolin" "The Great Battle at Fredericksburg" "The Recapture of Lexington" and more.
Four pages, large folio size, loose at the spine and close-trimmed affecting text on outer columns of pages 2 & 3, otherwise good.
