"Confederate States of America" in the masthead...

Item # 698185

June 09, 1864

CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, South Carolina, June 9, 1864 

* From the origin of the American Civil War

This was one of just a few Confederate newspapers which printed: "Confederate States Of America" in the masthead.
The front page has a wealth of content concerning this late stage of the Civil War and includes: "From General Lee's Army--Grant's Position--Enemy's Dead Unburied" "From Richmond" "Headquarters 5th S.C. Cavalry"; a list of promotions & assignments; "The Removal of British Consuls From the Confederate States" "Siege of Charleston" "Slavery" "The Battles Near Richmond" "Confederate Congress" "A Trophy of Sumter" "Illness of General Lee and Beauregard in Command" "Latest From the Florida Front" and even more.
A few war-related reports on the back page but most of it is taken up with advertisements.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper (typical late in the war from the Confederacy), very nice condition.
