Confederate reports from Charleston...
Item # 693154
February 27, 1863
CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, South Carolina, Feb. 27, 1863
* From the origin of the Civil War
This was one of just a few newspapers which printed: "Confederate States Of America" in the masthead.
Among the small heads on the front page are: "Yankee Iron-Clad Gunboat Indianola Captured--The Capture Made with Confederate Steamers Queen of the West & Webb--Her Officers & Crew Taken Prisoners..." "Texas Items" "The Passage of the Ram at Vicksburg" & other items. Page 2 has almost a full column headed: "Negro Soldiers".
The back page has: "The Feeling in the Northwest" which makes reference to Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation; "From The North" with several subheads; plus other war-related reports.
Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, very nice condition.
