Confederate Civil War title from Kentucky...



Item # 595286

July 18, 1861

LOUISVILLE DAILY COURIER, Kentucky, July 18, 1861 

* Battle of Rich Mountain 
* Rare Confederate title
 

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 pro-Confederate newspaper.

The front page has: "The Skirmishes at Rich Mountain & Laurel Hill--Gen. McClellan's Dispatches", "Affairs in Missouri--Raising a Regiment...", "Infamous Outrage of Federal Troops...", "More Effect of the Lincoln Blockade" and more.

Page 3 has: "McDowell's Advance!", "53,000 Federal Troops!", "They March For Richmond", "Southerns Prepare", "The War to Commence in Earnest!", "Arizona For Secession" and more.  Plus more war coverage on the back page with: "Patterson Advances!" "Movements Of The Invaders" "FAIRFAX EVACUATED!" "The War In Missouri" "Another Fight" and more.

Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, various minor tears at the margins, some light damp staining, minor loss at the lower spine.
Four pages, large folio size, some wear & minor tears at margins, archivally rejoined at the spine, generally good.
