Regarding General Butler...
Item # 670764
February 14, 1863
DAILY RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, Feb. 14, 1863
* General Benjamin 'Beast' Butler in Orleans
* Rare Confederate title from the rebel capital
Perhaps the most interesting item is the front page article: "Butler's Rule In New Orleans", "Full Exposure of Butler's Rule--Unparalleled Villainy--How the People Were Fleeced--Reply Of The Citizens to General Butler's Farewell Address To Them--How Banks Is Acting" with the text taking close to three columns. One of the subheads within the text is: "Reply of the Citizens of New Orleans to General Butler's Farewell Address to Them--A Review of His "Administration". Also on the front page are: "From Fredericksburg", "A Brilliant Cavalry Skirmish and Chase Near Williamsburg--The Yankees Leading the Van".
The back page has much reporting from: "The Confederate Congress" as well as from the: "Virginia Legislature". Plus there is a lengthy editorial which begins: "The secession of the Northwest from the United States would leave the Rump Union in a most deplorable predicament..." with much more.
Complete in four pages with a full banner masthead, never bound nor trimmed, but in very nice condition.
