Among the one column heads on the ftpg. are: "The War In the Southwest" "Operations of Commodore Foote at Fort Pillow" "The Siege of Yorktown" "Attempt of the Rebels to Strengthen One of Their Batteries" "Skirmishing Along the Whole Line" "Good News From Gen. Banks" "The Enemy Driven Out of Mount Jackson" "The Rebels Reported to be in Force at Rude's Hill" and more (see). Page four under "Shiloh" has, "We learn from Gen. Beauregard's letter to Gen. Grant, asking leave to bury his dead, that the field which our brave fellows fought so stoutly and won so nobly should be called Shiloh and not Pittsburgh Landing." It continues, "For Shiloh means deliverance; and on that field of Shiloh we believe that the deliverance of our country was really accomplished. The field of Shiloh be it then. We thank thee, Jew, for teaching us that word."
Complete in 8 pages, very nice condition.
