Item # 690879

September 01, 1864

RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, Sept. 1, 1864  

* Rare Confederate publication
* Capture of Atlanta (Eve)
* General William T. Sherman


A newspaper from the capital of the Confederacy. Among the reports are: "The War News" "Wheeler In East Tennessee" "From Mobile" "From Mississippi" "Norther News" "From Atlanta--Shelling the City--The Situation of Affairs" and much more.
The back page has the always interesting editorial, with a strong Confederate bias. It begins: "The campaigns against Richmond and Atlanta not promising well, and confidence in Generals Grant and Sherman growing weaker every day, the Yankees are throwing themselves back on their old consolations..." and much more. Atlanta would be captured by Sherman the very next day.
Complete as a single sheet issue with a one column masthead (typical near the end of the war), good condition.
