Item # 604536
May 8, 1863
WESTERN SENTINEL, Winston, North Carolina, May 8, 1863
* Rare Confederate title
This is a very rare title from the Confederacy. According to Brigham only four institutions in the United States have any holdings of this title from the Civil War, most just a few scattered issues. The American Antiquarian Society has no issues recorded from this era.
Among the front page reports are those headed: "Confederate Powder Mills" "Mississippi" "Gen. Hill To His Command" "Desperate Combat with Indians in Texas" "The Feeling In The North" "Stand By The Flag!". Articles inside include: "The News" "The Right Course" "A Fight Near Kinston" "The Exemption Act" and more.
Complete in four pages, bit of light foxing & some light damp staining at the top. A few minor edge tears, generally nice.
