Helping slaves to escape, in a Confederate newspaper...



Item # 656558

March 5, 1864

DAILY RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, March 5, 1864 

* Helping Southern Slaves escape to the North
* From the capital of the Confederacy


A very nice newspaper from the capital of the Confederacy. The front page includes: "Another Affair With The Enemy Around Richmond--Capture Of Important Papers And Memoranda of the Enemy" which has several subheads. Also: "Telegraphic Reports of the Press Association--From the Rapid Ann--From the Mississippi--More Fighting In Florida--From Charleston" "City Intelligence" and more. There is also a small item: "Aiding Slaves to Escape--George, slave of Dr. George Leftwitch, was arrested by officers Bibb and Chalkley, charged with aiding slaves to escape, & carrying them to the lines within the control of the enemy."
The back page begins with an interesting editorial which takes 1 1/2 columns (see for portions). Also: "Latest From The North" "The Virginia Legislature" and a very lengthy "General Order: An Act to Organize Forces To Serve During The War" which takes over 1 1/2 columns.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper,  never been bound nor trimmed, in great condition.

Item from Catalog 284 (released for July, 2019)...
