THE PRESS, Philadelphia, May 13, 1863  

* General Stonewall Jackson shot
* Battle of Chancellorsville

The front page has a report headed: "The Wounds Of General Jackson" taken from the Richmond Enquirer newspaper, beginning: "Our victory on the Rappahannock has cost us dear in the severe wounds unfortunately received by the great and good General Jackson. His left arm has been amputated above the elbow; a bullet has passed through his right hand. His condition is now, we learn, as favorable as could possibly be expected; and he will doubtless recover, and is not, we trust, lost to active service..." with more.
But he would die 8 days later.
Four pages, very large folio size (27 1/2 by 20 inches), good condition. The folder size noted is for the issue folded in half.
