Southern generals described...

Item # 656119

April 22, 1864

CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, South Carolina, April 22, 1864  This was one of very few newspapers which actually printed in their dateline: "Confederate States Of America".
There is much front page reporting on the Civil War, from the Confederate perspective, including: "Good News From North Carolina!" "Official From Gen. Hoke--Capture of Plymouth, N.C., A Yankee Brigadier, 1600 Prisoners, Stores, Artillery, etc." "From Richmond" "Enemy's Gunboats on the Rappahannock--Later Northern News" "Siege of Charleston" "Papers From the Soldiers" "The Crisis" and other smaller items.
The back page has an interesting article taking close to two columns: "Southern Generals Described by an Englishman" with some details on those with subheads: "General Joseph E. Johnston" "General Braxton Bragg" "Lieut. Gen. Longstreet" "Gen. Magruder" "Gen. Kirby Smith" "General Hebert" "Lieut. Gen. W. J. Hardee" "Lieut. Gen. Leonidas Polk" "About Stonewall Jackson" and a bit more (see).
Complete as a single sheet newspaper, irregular at the spine margins, a few small archival mends at the margins, and a small wear hold at a vertical fold affecting 3 words on the ftpg.
