Confederate newspaper from West Baton Rouge...

Item # 629702

August 17, 1861

SUGAR PLANTER, West Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Aug. 17, 1861 

* Very rare Confederate publication

Here is a very uncommon title from Louisiana during the first year of the Civil War. The front page is filled with ads. Among the column heads on pg. 2 are: "Calumnies of the Lincoln Press" "France Will Acknowledge the Southern Confederacy" "The Confederate Loan" "Scott's Cavalry Battalion" "The Fourth Regiment L.S.V." "Tennesseans Called Out" "Preparing For Another Manassas" "Troops Ready" and more.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the blank spine foxing & light toning throughout, a few archival mends on pg. 2, generally nice.
