The Monitor and the Merrimac revolutionize naval warfare...
Item # 654251
March 13, 1862
CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, South Carolina, March 13, 1862 This was one of just a few newspapers from the South which printed: "Confederate States of America" in the dateline.
Among the ftpg. reports are two which related to the famous battle of the Monitor & Merrimac. One, headed: "The Victory at Hampton Roads", deals more with how the Merrimac was constructed, with much interesting detail. It continues retelling its success against other Northern ships.
The other article: "Northern Accounts of the Great Naval Battle--The Herald Claims a Victory (?) For the Ericsson". This article reports from the Northern accounts of the encounter between the Monitor and Merrimac, doubting many of the claims (see).
Various other war-related accounts as well.
Great to have these reports in a Confederate newspaper. Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, some fold foxing, small bit from the bottom margin does not touch text.
