WESTERN SENTINEL, Winston, North Carolina, January 24, 1862
* Rare Confederate title
* Jefferson Davis
This is a very rare title from the Confederacy. According to Brigham only four institutions in the United States have any holdings of this title from the Civil War, most just a few scattered issues. The American Antiquarian Society has no issues recorded from this era.
Among the front page items are: "Mr. Vallandigham's Speech" "President Davis & the Southwestern Publishing House" which includes a letter signed in type by: Jefferson Davis, to the publisher, noting in part: "...I feel a deep interest in every undertaking...pertaining to the prosperity & progress of a free and great Confederacy..." (see photos). Also: "Thwarted Again" which begins: "Lincoln's contemptible government has been thwarted in every attempt it has made towards subjugating the rebels...".
Reports inside include: "Disloyalty" which is an editorial; "The News" which has reports on the war; "A Bill--Entitled a Act to Prevent Information of the Plans & Operations of the Land & naval Forces of the Confederate States being Conveyed to the Enemy". "Latest News", "The Militia Called Out", 'The Winter & the Army", "Federal Villainy in Missouri--A Young Lady Killed in Cold Blood" and other items.
Four pages, very nice, clean condition.
