THE CHARLESTON MERCURY, South Carolina, Oct. 8, 1863
* Battle of Chickamauga
* General Braxton Bragg
A nice newspaper from the hotbed of the Confederacy. The front page includes: "News From New Orleans" "News From Lee's Army" "Farewell Address of Lt. Gen. Leonidas Polk" and some bkpg. content as well: "The Operations Against Charleston". But certainly the best content is the front page report: "From Bragg's Army" which takes most of a column with details on the Battle of Chickamauga (see).
Complete as a single sheet newspaper, full size, nice condition.
