THE DAILY JOURNAL, Wilmington, North Carolina, Aug. 7, 1861
* P.G.T. Beauregard praised
* Battle of Bull Run - Manassas
This is one of just a few newspapers which printed: "Confederate States of America" in their dateline.
While the ftpg. is taken up with ads, inside has some very good war content including a lengthy item: "Notes, Facts and Queries for the People". This includes an interesting bit: "...Yes, in the eyes of God & man, morally, constitutionally, Abraham Lincoln is a perjurer and murderer. This is no figurative exaggeration. It is not the coloring of prejudice, but the sober judgment of truth, founded upon facts & principles which admit of no controversy..." and more.
Also: "Lincoln's War Measures" "Gen. Loring" and a nice letter signed by: J. E. Johnston and G. T. Beauregard to their soldiers congratulating them for their efforts in the Battle of Manassas. This is followed by a similar letter of congratulates signed: Jeff. Davis, to General Beauregard.
Four pages, very nice condition.
