Rare CONFEDERATE First Battle of Bull Run Civil War 1861 New Bern NC Newspaper

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: DAILY PROGRESS, New Bern, North Carolina, July 20, 1861 * Very rare Confederate title * First Battle of Bull Run * Manassas, Virginia Certainly one of the less common titles from the Confederacy, as rarely have I seen it offered. This coastal town didn't remain Confederate for very long as it fell to General Burnside on March 14, 1862 with the Battle of New Bern. So truly "Confederate" issues can be difficult to come by. Among the front page items are: "Two Men Killed" "The Dover Meeting" & other reports, however certainly the most notable content is the reporting on the first major battle of the Civil War: "Battle Opened at Manassas" "The Lincolnites Attempt to Cross at Bull's Run!" "They are Three Times Repulsed ... See More
