November 17, 1862
DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Nov. 17, 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: "The Removal of McClellan" "Brook's Speech" "Progress & Events of the War" "The Condition of our Iron-Clad Vessels" "The Country Subjugated Unless we all Work for It!" "Message of Gov. Brown in Reference to the Raid at St. Mary's" and more.
Four pages, foxing & damp staining, otherwise nice condition.
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.
