Confederate war news with talk of Abe Lincoln...



Item # 619195

November 21, 1862

WESTERN SENTINEL, Winston, North Carolina, November 21, 1862 

* 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. 
There is some nice content in the issue About half of the ftpg. is taken up with: "The Conscription Law--A Bill to be entitled 'An Act to Further provide for the public Defense.' ". Also on the ftpg. is: "The United States Elections" which includes in part: "The change against Lincoln is very great & doubtless is very disquieting to him...The people of the United States have at least declared by this vote that Lincoln is prosecuting the war by wicked & forbidden means...our duty is to assume the worst & prepare for it..." with more. Also on the ftpg: "A Cry for Peace".
Page two has: "The News" "A Goodly Sight" "The Fever at Wilmington" "Trouble Ahead Northward" "From the North".
Page 3 has: "General Lee" "Confederate Bonds" "The Women of the South" "The Exchange of Prisoners" "An Incident of Stuart's Late Raid" "The Pirate Semms" and more.
The back page has "Brother Against Brother" and a bit more but is mostly taken up with advertisements.
Complete in 4 pages, very nice condition.
An opportunity for not only a very rare Confederate title, but one with some fine content.
