Commentary on the Civil War...
Item # 601954
March 19, 1864
DAILY RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, March 19, 1864 A very nice newspaper from the capital of the Confederacy. The front page includes: "The Mountain Department" "The Richmond Fayette Artillery" "The Citizen Ambulance Corps of Richmond" "The Enemy We Are Fighting--Sherman's Heroes" " & telegraphic reports from various fronts.
Much of the back page is taken up with a lengthy editorial, which begins: "It would be very unwise to make our calculations for the present year upon an assumption that the war is dying out..." and touching on many other topics of the war. Also: "Lincoln's Draft" with a chart of the numbers, and other items.
Complete as a single sheet issue, never bound nor trimmed, nice condition.
