Where the last battle of the Civil War was fought...

Item # 618261

August 07, 1862

DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Aug. 7, 1862 

* Very rare Confederate publication
* General John Hunt Morgan

Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Among the various reports inside are: "How Morgan Used the Telegraph" which includes 3 dispatches each signed in type: John H. Morgan; "Progress & Events of the War" "The Pamunky Indians"; a letter from: "Head-Quarters" datelined at Marietta, Ga.; "The Fayetteville Arsenal" "Guerrilla Raid into Indiana" "Letter from the Fiftieth Georgia Regiment" "The Federal Army at Cumberland Gap"  and more
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, 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.
