Item # 599630
April 2, 1862
DAILY RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, April 2, 1862 A nice newspaper from the capital of the Confederate States of America. Page 2 has a lengthy editorial touching on several topics of the Civil War, one paragraph beginning: "Flags of truce are suspended at Norfolk and all the channels of intelligence broken up with the enemy..." and elsewhere: "It was doubtless the enemy's intention at first to combine with a march upon Richmond under Wool on one side of the James, and under Burnside on the other...The performances of the Merrimac seem to have disturbed that plan for some time...The plan of the enemy to strike at Richmond by a combined movement through Fredericksburg and up the peninsula is certainly a sensible one..." and much more.
Also inside: "The Late Battle in Arkansas--Another Federal Account" "Movements And Spirit of the War" "Bombardment of Island No. Ten-Seven Days of Continuous firing--Terrific Cannonading..." with much more; "From the Peninsula" "the Battle Near Winchester" "The Cotton Problem" "The Confederate Congress" and more.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, minor tears at the bottom margin, generally very nice condition.
