Quite rare newspaper from Missouri during the Civil War...
Item # 664809
February 11, 1863
THE MACON GAZETTE, Macon City, Missouri, Feb. 11, 1863
* Rare Civil War era publication
A quite scarce title as only one institution has any issues of this title.
From a state fractured by alliances to the North & the South, this title is decidedly pro-North. Among the ftpg. articles are: "What the Soldiers Think" "The Rebels 'Won't be Reconstructed' " "Conscription in Tennessee" "Naval Battle off Charleston" "Two Blockading Vessels Sunk" "Beauregard Declares the Blockage Raised".
More war reports inside including: "News From S.E. Missouri" "Gallant Dash on Batesville, Arkansas" "Marmaduke Driven Beyond White River" and more.
Four pages, very nice condition.
