Confederate newspaper...Sherman advancing towards Columbia...
Item # 680863
November 30, 1864
THE DAILY SOUTHERN GUARDIAN, Columbia, South Carolina, Nov. 30, 1864 A rather rare title and great that it includes the word “Southern”.
The front page is mostly taken up with ads & military notices but there are also: "From the North--the Capture of Butler's Picket Line in Chesterfield" "The Rumored Peace Commissioners' Appointment" "Another Raid Into Maryland" "The Latest From Price".
The back page has more war reports as well as reports from the South Carolina legislature.
Complete as a single sheet issue with wide, untrimmed margins. A very small library stamp above the masthead, some clear tape at the top margin, nice condition.
