October 10, 1864
THE DAILY SOUTHERN GUARDIAN, Columbia, South Carolina, Oct. 10, 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" "Grant's Operations" "Affairs in Missouri" and a letter to General Grant signed by: P. H. Sheridan, from Harrisonburg, Va.
Back page has more including: "The War News" "Sheridan Preparing for a Change of Base" "Another Raid on the Rapidan" "From Mosby's Command" "Help for the Prisoners" and more.
The back page has more war reports as well as reports from the South Carolina legislature.
Complete as a single sheet issue with very wide, untrimmed margins. A very small library stamp above the masthead, some clear tape at folds, nice condition.
