August 08, 1862

DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Aug. 8, 1862  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: "Our Independence No Longer a Doubt" which is an interesting and over-confident letter mentioning in part: "...I consider our independence as a nation no longer a problem to be solved. The result of the battles before Richmond...we have convinced that government that we are invincible--that we can not be conquered..." and more (see). Other items include: "Mediation Recommended" "The London Times on Federal Lying" "Army Correspondence of the Savannah republican" "Progress & Events of the War" "The Recent Attack on McClellan's Fleet & encampment" "A Skirmish in Prince George" "Negro Labor for the Coast Defence" and more.
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, a few very discrete archival mends at margins, very 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.
