Confederate newspaper with a wealth of war reporting...
Item # 668802
November 09, 1864
THE DAILY SOUTHERN GUARDIAN, Columbia, South Carolina, Nov. 9, 1864
* Rare Confederate publication
* Nearing the end of the Civil War
A rather rare title and great that it includes the word “Southern”.
The front page is mostly taken up with ads & military notices but the first 2 columns have war news: "Latest From the United States" "Mosby's Operations--The Capture of Gen. Duffie" "The Yankee National Defense" "Lincoln Mus Have A Big Victory" "The Blowing Up of the Ram Albemarle".
The back page has: "The Prison Camp Near Columbia" whic is very lengthy. Also: "War News".
Complete as a single sheet issue with very wide, untrimmed margins. A very small library stamp above the masthead, small piece of clear tape to the front page, nice condition.
