* Very rare Confederate title
Here is an uncommon title from Louisiana during the first year of the Civil War. The front page is filled with ads, and among the reports inside are: "Keep on Giving" "The Truth" which includes a bit: "...Mr. Lincoln has unwittingly been a benefactor to the South. He has taught us the inestimable blessings of self-reliance and independence. He has compelled us to look to ourselves..." with more (see); "A Word to Subscribers" "Suppressing the Tribune & News" "The Army McCulloch Has Beaten" and more.
Four pages, irregular at the spine from disbinding, very nice, clean condition.
