Very Rare CONFEDERATE New Bern NC North Carolina 1861 Civil War Old Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 373034751746

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: DAILY PROGRESS, New Bern, North Carolina, August 17, 1861 * Very rare Confederate title from North Carolina Certainly one of the less common titles from the Confederacy, as rarely have I seen it offered.

Among the front page items are: "The Legislature" "As We Predicted", the latter being an editorial piece beginning: "We long since predicted that the Yankees would be fighting among themselves before the war was over, and sure enough it has commenced....". Also on the ftpg: "From Washington--Weakness of the Hessian Army" "From Washington--Inhuman Treat... See More
