Some war items on the back page but mostly taken up with ads.
Complete as a single sheet issue, full banner masthead, small paper-flaw hole affects very little, nice condition. From the closing months of the Civil War.

Charleston was a hotbed of secession, with S.C. being the first state to leave the Union. The first shots of the war were fired in Charleston harbor. As a notable slave port, it is not surprising that South Carolina lead the charge in forming the new Confederate States of America.
