A Confederate newspaper reports the Civil War...
Item # 666248
October 21, 1862
DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Oct. 21, 1862
* Very rare Confederate title
Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Among the various war reports inside are: "Army Correspondence of the Savannah Republican" "A Hardened Sinner Hung" "From Warrenton and Vicinity" "The Seal" which concerns the Confederate government seal; "Progress and Events of the War" "Result of the Conflict in Maryland" "Stuart's Late Expedition" "Bragg Reported Falling Back" and more.
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, light toning and light water staining, generally nice condition.
It was in Columbus where the last battle of the Civil War was fought. Note: The Battle of Palmito Ranch in Texas actually occurred weeks after the Battle of Columbus, but the engagement at Palmito Ranch happened after the Confederate government had dissolved and the Confederacy was extinct. In the "Official Records", the Battle of Columbus is referred to as the "closing conflict of the war.
