The city of Augusta, Ga., located on the Georgia-South Carolina line near Aitkin, was a major Confederate manufacturing center during the war, and producing considerable gun powder for southern armies. Throughout, it left largely untouched by the fighting around it during Sherman’s Atlanta Campaign and arch through the Carolinas.

This issue was published in mid-June 1864, just as Sherman’s forces had moved past New Hope Church on their move toward Atlanta. Aside from an excerpt from “Yankee” sources, the paper does not take notice of Sherman’s movements. Front page headlines feature news from Lee’s Army. To wit: “Official from Gen. Lee. The Movements of Grant’s Army”— “Yankees Reach James river. Depots at White House Broken Up — “Yankee Cavalry Broken Up.” And it does print a listing of casualties of the 38th Georgia Regiment, from the 4th to 31st of May, 1864. Also casualties of the 12th Georgia Battalion, in the battles of 1st and 2nd June, 1864

The rear page features “Foreign Gossip” commentary concerning, Rose Greenhow, the famed spy, now Confederate Envoy to Emperor Napoleon.—“Mrs. Greenhow, the Southern Heroine…is decidedly considered a wonderful woman…and is regarded by the ladies of Paris as the personification of the patriotic heroine.”

Fine Confederate Georgia newspaper collectible. [jp]
