Manufacturer Description

LOUISVILLE DAILY COURIER, Kentucky, May 15, 1861 * Rare pro-Confederate title 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 Confederate-leaning newspaper. The ftpg. has: "Letter From Frankfort" "Federal Movements" "The Rebel Troops on Munson's Hill". Inside has: "Freedom or Slavery" "The Failure of Neutrality" "WAR NEWS" "Kentucky's Policy - Against the South!" " "Southern Troops to be Ordered Out of the State" "Fight on the River!" "Maryland To Secede!" "Beauregard's Forces" "170,000 Southerners" " and much more. There are some war items on page 2 but it is mostly taken up with ads, as is page 3. But page 4 has many "Civil War reports including: "Northern Troops to March on Alexandria" 'Missouri Troops Concentrating at Jefferson City!" "12,000 Troops In Memphis" and more. Complete in four pages with the leaves professionally & archivally rejoined at the spine. Nice condition.
