Lincoln as the "imp of Darkness"...



Item # 618118

October 27, 1862

DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Oct. 27, 1862 

* Very rare Confederate title
* re. President Abraham Lincoln
* Battle of Perryville, Kentucky


Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Page 2 has a fascinating & lengthy article: "Lincoln and His Proclamation" which is full of hatred towards him, including: "I see the Devil has given us a parting kick, via Washington City, by that imp of darkness, Abe Lincoln...expressed the opinion that Lincoln was the most vile and bitter enemy the South ever had Time has proved the correctness of that opinion..." and more, going on to comment concerning the Emancipation Proclamation (see).
Page 2 also has over half a column report headed: "The Battle of Perryville" signed in type by: Braxton Bragg. Other items inside include: "From the Army of the Potomac" "The Armies at Winchester" "A Ram for the American Confederate Government" and more.
Most of the back page is taken up with: "The Constitution of the State of Georgia" ratified July  2, 1861.
Four pages, toned throughout, water stains near the top & bottom do not deter readability, generally good.

It was here where the  last battle of the Civil War was fought. Note: The Battle of Palmito Ranch in Texas actually occurred weeks after the Battle of Columbus, but the engagement at Palmito Ranch happened after the Confederate government had dissolved and the Confederacy was extinct. In the "Official Records", the Battle of Columbus is referred to as the "closing conflict of the war.
