DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Nov. 1, 1862

* Very rare Confederate publication

Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Among the various reports inside are: "From Knoxville--J.T.G." has reports on the war; "Officers Out of Place" "Progress & Events of the War" "The Wreck of the Iona" "The Confederate Steamer Columbia" "Fight at Franklin" and more.
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, even toning, various damp staining, otherwise good.

It was in Columbus where the last battle of the Civil War was fought. Note: The Battle of Palmito Ranch in Texas actually occurred weeks after the Battle of Columbus, but the engagement at Palmito Ranch happened after the Confederate government had dissolved and the Confederacy was extinct. In the "Official Records", the Battle of Columbus is referred to as the "closing conflict of the war.
