From Texas during the Civil War...



Item # 660594

September 23, 1864

GALVESTON TRI-WEEKLY NEWS, Texas, September 23, 1864  Newspapers from Texas are very uncommon particularly from before or during the Civil War. Here is an issue from the city of Galveston that has various war-related content, including a front page report headed: "500,000 more Victims to Abolitionism".
There is also a brief dispatch signed in type D.G. Farragut to Brig-Gen. Page that reads: "To prevent the sacrifice of human life, we demand the unconditional surrender of Fort Morgan." And Page's reply: "I am prepared to sacrifice life, and will only surrender when I have no means of defence..."
Other war-related content as well. An 18 by 11 inch single sheet, has a small hole in the first column, and a few archival mends on the reverse. A nice opportunity for a paper from Texas during the Civil War.
