Sherman descending upon Savannah...



Item # 662129

December 19, 1864

DAILY RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, Dec. 19, 1864  Not just a newspaper from the Confederate, but from the capital of the Confederate states. The front page has an editorial beginning: "The accounts from Nashville are the statements of the enemy, & must be received with much caution. It is probable that the real facts are somewhat coloured..." with much more. Also: "Latest News From the North" "The Virginia Legislature" "The St. Albans Raiders--Attempt to Re-Arrest them--Important Order from General Dix" and various reports from the: "Confederate Congress".
The back page has "The Yankee Congress--The Vermont Raiders--Important Debate on the War & Politics" "The News From Savannah--Movements Of Sherman--Fall of Fort McAllister" which is significant, as Sherman would capture this city just 3 days later. Also on the bkpg: "The War News" "City Intelligence" "Runaway Negroes" and a few smaller items.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper with a one column masthead, typical from the South late in the war as most of the paper mills were in the north. Never bound nor trimmed & in very nice, clean condition.
