Stuart's raid into Pennsylvania...
Item # 666216
October 30, 1862
DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Oct. 30, 1862
* Very rare Confederate title
* J.E.B. Stuart's raid on Chambersburg
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: "Interesting from New Orleans" "The Recognition of the Confederate States by Europe" "General Review" and more.
The best item is on page 3 headed: "Stuart's Official Report of his Expedition into Pennsylvania" which takes nearly 1 1/2 columns and is signed by him in type: J.E.B. Stuart.
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.
