The July 4, 1863 souvenir “Yankee’ reprint of the famed July 2nd “Wallpaper” ed. 2 pages.  Printed front page is pure “Confederate,” w/ the following “Yankee“ note  of explanation appearing in the lower right corner:

“Two days bring about great changes. The banner of the Union floats over Vicksburg. Gen. Grant has ‘caught the rabbit’; he has dined in Vicksburg, and he did bring his dinner with him. The “Citizen” lives to see it. For the last time it appears on “Wall Paper.” No more will it imagine the luxury of  mule meat and fricasseed chicken—urge Southern warriors to such diet never more. This is the last [of the Siege of Vicksburg] wall-paper edition, and is, excepting this note, from the types as we found them. It will valuable hereafter as a curiosity.”

If not the original, still a sweet “Siege of Vicksburg” collectible. In excellent condition and entirely legible.  Protective sleeve, w/white card backing.  [jp]
