Grant's Commission" "A Magnificent Report" "Reprisals for Abolition Outrages" "Outrages Perpetrated--Disgraceful Conduct of Soldiers and Officer" "Destroying the Negroes" "Southern News" "War News of the Week" "Kilpatrick's Raid on Richmond" "One of the Atrocities of This Terrible War..." and more.

Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South", this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
