Confederate Civil War title from Kentucky...
Item # 643715
July 1, 1861
LOUISVILLE DAILY COURIER, Kentucky, July 1, 1861 Louisville is difficult to categorize as Union or Confederate during the Civil War as, depending on the time, there were factions within the city supporting both. To placate both sides the two leading newspapers took their stands: the "Courier" was very much pro-Confederate & the "Journal" was more pro-Union. This is the pro-Confederate newspaper.
The front page has: "Army Correspondence--Heat--Dull Times--Our Camp--More Kentuckians--Destruction of Harper's Ferry..." "The Miserable Condition of Missouri--The Outrages Perpetrated by Lincoln's Forces" "Proclamation of Gen. Banks to the People of Baltimore" and more. Pg. 3 has column heads: "The Revolution" "MORE SKIRMISHING" "Gen. Butler's Loyalty Suspected" "Officers Requesting his Removal" "They Refuse to Attack Under His Command" "The War to be Prosecuted With More Vigor" and more.
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, nice condition.
