Item # 604473
April 7, 1863
CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, South Carolina, April 7, 1863 This is one of just a few newspapers which printed: "Confederate States of America" in the dateline (see). Among the front page reports are: "Reports From Gen. Bragg's Front" "The Enemy Outflanked--Our Sick & Baggage Ordered to the Rear" "Banks Falling Back--Yankee Panic in Kentucky" "All Quiet on the River--Nothing New from Yazoo" and other items.
The back page has two General Orders & a wealth of ads. Complete as a single sheet newspaper, a bit irregular at the blank margin, generally nice condition.
