From a Confederate stronghold just months before the Civil War breaks out...
Item # 215025 THE DAILY JOURNAL, Wilmington, North Carolina, 1861 Here is an issue from the early months of 1861 not long before the "official" outbreak of the Civil War in April, 1861. Wilmington was a strategic port city which was not captured by the Yankees until early in 1865. As such it held much significance during the War. This is a very nice four page issue filled with various news of the day & a huge number of ads, some of which have a military theme. Nice to have an issue from this city with a date so close to the Civil War, as the price jumps significantly with dates after the bombing of Fort Sumter. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you received will have an almost identical look and will be dated in early 1861. Very nice, clean condition..
