Vicksburg falls to the Yankees...

Item # 691161

July 13, 1863

BANGOR DAILY WHIG & COURIER, Maine, July 13, 1863

* Vicksburg, Mississippi falls
* Robert E. Lee's retreat after defeat
* Post Battle of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

 Although the front pate has much Civil War content, including a letter signed in type: A. Lincoln, the best reporting is inside.
Page 3 has: "PARTICULARS of the VICKSBURG SURRENDER" "Correspondence of Grant & Pemberton" "Terms of Capitulation" "Prisoners Reported at 27,000" "Lee Entrenching Two Miles From Hagerstown".
Also: "MARYLAND" "The Enemy Reported Defeated at Sharpsburg" "Our Forces Occupy Hagerstown" "Mississippi!" "19 Rebel General Paroled at Vicksburg" "Sherman in Pursuit of Rebel Johnston" "Grant Offers Aid to General Banks" and more.
Certainly a terrific issue with a wealth of war reporting.
Four pages, very nice condition.
