RICHMOND EXAMINER, Virginia, July 19, 1864  

* Battle of Monocacy - Frederick, Maryland
* Rare Confederate title from the rebel capital

Nice to have a Confederate newspaper from the capital of the Confederacy. 
The front page has: "The War News" with the latest events of the war, and includes a subhead: "The Battle at Monocacy--Rout of the Enemy" & "Richmond & Petersburg" and "From Georgia" which has some very nice content.
Other items include: "Waste In Food" "Official Corruption & Abuses" "Fight Between Citizens & Deserters" "Hospital Arrangements" and a few other small items.
The back page has a lengthy editorial--always great reading in this newspaper--and which begins with: "That Confederate force which lately visited Maryland has returned to Virginia. It has returned 'safe'; the enemy has remained safe; its 'losses are slight'; so are theirs'..." with much more.
Also on this page: "Latest News From the North" with subheads: "The Latest From the Army of Invasion--From Grant's Army--Sheridan On Another Raid--From Sherman's Army--Resolutions Favouring Peace--Democratic Conventions in the North--As Far Fro the End as Ever--The Georgia Campaign--Sherman's Next Move--In For The War" Also: "From the Armies In Georgia which includes a letter to the governor, signed in type: J. E. Johnston.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper with a one column masthead (typical from the South late in the war as most paper mills were in the North), folio size, very nice condition.
