October 17, 1863

THE CHARLESTON MERCURY, South Carolina, Oct. 17, 1863 

* Rare Confederate publication

Perhaps the most famous newspaper from the Confederacy. The front page has: "Latest From East Tennessee" "Good News From Lee's Army" "Latest From the United States" "Letter from Richmond" & more. The back page has: "The Sufferings of the Border Missourians" "The Situation in East Tennessee" and a bit more, plus a wealth of ads.
Complete as a single sheet issue of folio size, a very small hold at a fold in the top quadrant, otherwise very nice condition.
