Mosby, Adams, Long, and more...

Item # 702886

April 28, 1864

CHARLESTON DAILY COURIER, Charleston, South Carolina, April 28, 1864 

* From the origin of the American Civil War

This was one of the few newspapers which had: "Confederate States of America" printed in the masthead (see). There is much reporting on the Civil War--from the Confederate perspective--including ftpg. items headed: "From Orange C.H.--Yankee Army Ordered to Move--Mosby Harassing the Enemy--Surprise of a Picket" "From Dalton--Dash Of Yankee Cavalry" "From Richmond--Affairs at the Capital" "Latest  From New Orleans--Yankees Claim a Drawn Battle in the Late Fighting" "From Demopolis, Ala." "From Mississippi--Wirt Adams' Victory--The Enemy Retreating" "The Federal Defeat in Louisiana" "Siege of Charleston" "Mr. Long's Great Speech In the Yankee Congress" which has much on the war.
The back page has a few items including: "Later from New Orleans & Red River" but is otherwise taken up with various advertisements including "Fifty Dollars Reward" for a runaway slave, and "One Hundred Dollars Reward" which is similar, plus many Acts of the Confederate Congress.
Complete as a single sheet newspaper, a few minor archival mends at the margins, paper weakness causes many small holes but causing no loss of readability, generally in very nice condition.

Item from Catalog 341 (released for April, 2024)
