DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Oct. 31, 1862 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 the Army of the Potomac" "An Immense Train" "Progress & Events of the War" "Columbus Guards & Columbus Volunteers" "From Knoxville--J.T.G." concerns the war; "A Voice of Warning" 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.
