Confederate Civil War title from Kentucky...
Item # 597600
July 18, 1861
LOUISVILLE DAILY COURIER, Kentucky, Sept. 14, 1861 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: "Villainous Dispatches--Lincolnite Lies" "Letter From Frankfort..." "The Vandals Pillaging Paducah" "Old Postage Stamps to be Continued in Use" "Proclamation of Gen. McCulloch". Inside has some nice one column heads including: "WAR NEWS" "The Gauley Battle" "Rosescran's Report!" "More Seizures!" "Kentucky Resolutions" "Affairs In Missouri" "From Cairo" and more.
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine some ink stain causes small holes, some loss at the spine & top margin.
