The Battle of Antietam...

Item # 618225

September 26, 1862

DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Sept. 26, 1862 

* Very rare Confederate publication
* Battle of Antietam - Sharpsburg MD
* Bloodiest one day battle in America

Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Various reports inside include: "More Northern News" "From Cumberland Gap" "Movements of our Army in Maryland" "Davis vs. Lincoln" is interesting (see); "Losses in Georgia Regiments" "Progress & Events of the War" "The Battle of Wednesday" is a notable report on the Battle of Antietam (see)
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, foxing & light damp staining, 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.
