Among the articles in this issue are: "The Battle In The Virginia Valley" "Parson Brownlow" "Gwen. Buell on the Fugitive Question--His Policy Concerning the Colored Person" "The Battle of Newbern--Gen. Burnside's Official Report to the War Dept." "War News of the Week" "Andrew Johnson's Appeal to the People of Tennessee" and much more.
This interesting title was described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South". It 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.
Eight pages, nice condition.
