Early issue from this Southern town rich in history...



Item # 669467

August 4, 1827

THE CAMDEN JOURNAL, South Carolina, Aug. 4, 1827  A very early issue from this town rich in history, being the oldest inland  town in South Carolina, the site of notable Revolutionary War battles, and home to six Confederate generals. Gregory notes that only one institution (Univ. of S. C.) has any holdings of this title from the earliest years. This is a volume 2 issue.
The front page has: "New Harmony" on its demise with the leaving of founder Robert Owen, plus; "Navigation of the Chattahoochie". Page 3 has a "Negroes For Sale" ad.
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, scattered foxing, nice condition.
