Rare Confederate newspaper from Winston, North Carolina...



Item # 653358

August 23, 1861

WESTERN SENTINEL, Winston, North Carolina, Aug. 23, 1861  This is a very rare title from the Confederacy. According to Brigham only four institutions in the United States have any holdings of this title from the Civil War, most just a few scattered issues. The American Antiquarian Society has no issues recorded from this era.
Among the  reports are: "Gen. Scott and Mount Vernon" "Full Particulars of the Burning of Hampton, etc." "British Press on Lincoln's Message" "The President's Proclamation" which is an editorial on Jefferson Davis's proclamation; "Regulations Respecting Alien Enemies" "Gen. McCulloch" "Increase of the Army--400,-000 Men Called for" "The War News" and more.
The top of pg. 2 has a notice supporting: "For President: JEFFERSON DAVIS of Mississippi - For Vice President; ALEX. H. STEPHENS, of Georgia." 
Complete in four pages, some light foxing nice condition.
