Included within the report are a letter signed in type: G.T. Beauregard and another: R. E. Lee, among others. Also on the ftpg: "List of Casualties from the battle at Spottsylvania; "McNeil's Captures" "Fuineral of the Late Colonel Henry Clay Pate.
The back page features a lengthy editorial which focuses much on the work of General Grant (see for portions). Also: "The Confederate Congress" reports; "Additional From the North--Yankee  Accounts from Arkansas" & a few other smaller items.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper with a full banner masthead, very nice, clean condition.
