The Confederates in Pennsylvania...
Item # 618298
November 8, 1862
DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Nov. 8, 1862
* Very rare Confederate title
Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Among the various reports inside are: "Later Northern News" "From the Army of the Potomac" "Progress & Events of the War" "News from Milledgeville--The Legislature" "Capture of a Yankee Ship in the Potomac" "From the Potomac Army" "The Confederates in Pennsylvania" and more.
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, even toning, various damp staining, otherwise good.
It was in Columbus 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. (see hyperlink)
