"Stonewall" Jackson captures Harper's Ferry...

Item # 701184

September 20, 1862

DAILY COLUMBUS ENQUIRER, Georgia, Sept. 20, 1862 

* Very rare Confederate publication
* General Stonewall Jackson

Certainly one of the less common Confederate titles from the Civil War. Columbus is in Southwest Georgia on the Alabama border very near Montgomery.
Page 2 begins with a nice editorial headed: "Gen. Jackson's Movements" which begins: "The brilliant exploits of Gen. 'Stonewall' Jackson in the capture of Harper's Ferry & the Yankee garrison was a surprise to friend as well as foe..." with much more on this.
Other reports inside include: "5th Alabama Independent Battalion" "Latest form Nashville" "A Battle at Fayette Court House--Our Troops Victorious" "Progress & Events of the War" "Confederate Notes" and more.
Most of the back page is taken up with the: "Constitution of the State of Georgia, Ratified July 2, 1861".
Four pages, various foxing & light damp staining, nice condition.

It was in Columbus where the last battle of the Civil War was fought. Note: The Battle of Palmito Ranch in Texas actually occurred weeks after the Battle of Columbus, but the engagement at Palmito Ranch happened after the Confederate government had dissolved and the Confederacy was extinct. In the "Official Records", the Battle of Columbus is referred to as the "closing conflict of the war.
