LOUISVILLE DAILY JOURNAL, Kentucky, Aug. 29, 1863 * Uncommon title * John S. Mosby Louisville is difficult to categorize as Union or Confederate during the Civil War as, depending on the time, there were factions within the city supporting both. To placate both sides the two leading newspapers took their stands: the "Courier" was very much pro-Confederate & the "Journal" was more pro-Union. This is the Yankee-leaning newspaper. Articles include: "575,0000 Men in the Rebel Service" "Some of Morgan's Men in Tennessee" "A fight with Mosby's Guerilla Band" "News by Deserters from Lee's Army" "A General Skedaddle Takes Place" "The Bombardment of Fort Wagner" "Union Troops Occupy Fort Sumpter" and much more. Four pages, large folio size, cleanly cut at the spine with binding slits at the spine, wear at the margins with minor tears.
An original, printed in 1863
