CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, South Carolina, June 25, 1864 This is one of just a few newspapers which printed: "Confederate States of America" in their dateline at the top of the front page (see photos). Among the front page reports are: "From General Johnston's Army" "Enemy Again Repulsed With Severe Loss" "Losses In Hooker's Corps" "The Murder of Andrew Johnstone" "War Tax Assessments" "The Slavery of the Bible" "Leaving the Yankees" "Siege of Charleston".
Most of the back page is taken up with an Act of the Confederate Congress as well as many advertisements.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper, folio size with full banner masthead, some minor archival mends at margins, very nice condition.
