The front page has: "The Victory in Western Virginia--Address of Gen. Jackson to His Soldiers", signed in type: Henry R. Jackson. A page 2 ad endorses "Jefferson Davis Of Mississippi" for President and "Alex. H. Stephens, Of Georgia" for Vice President.
Page 2 also has the "Roll of the Confederate Stars" under Capt. G. C. Stowe. On the back page are the words of poem entitled: "The Confederate Flag". The poem begins: "Flag of the South! Flag of the Free! Thy stars shall cheer each eye Thy folds a sacred banner be, To all beneath our sky...".
