Whole No. 10,344. 8 pp., 24 x 15.5”, six columns. Exhibits center fold-mark, chipping round the margins, w/small inward tear along right margin fold-line. Else VG & entirely legible.

This issue is loaded with war news from December 1864. The front page features a map of Nashville and Franklin, TN, sites of resounding Union victories the week before, along with the following headlines: “HOOD’S FLIGHT. Scene of the disastrous rout of the Rebels from Nashville to Columbia”/ “Hood Across Duck River”/ Estimated Rebel Loss Twenty thousand”/ “Rebel Concessions of Hood’s Defeat”/ “They Put the Best Face on It, but Are Very Sore.”

Also news from Gen. Sherman’s Siege of Savannah, which had actually terminated two days earlier, December 21, with Savannah’s capture, with Sherman telegraphing the news to President Lincoln, presenting him the City as a “Christmas Present.”  Headlines as follows: “THE SIEGE OF SAVANNAH”/ “The City Closed to the Influx of Refugees”/ “Casualties in the Storming of Fort McAllistar”/ “further Particulars of the March Through Georgia.”

From the “Shenandoah” Martinsburg, VA., correspondent comes new of the activities of rebel John Mosby. To wit:

“MOSBY PROMOTED. Some of the citizens here assert that Mosby’s recent visit to Richmond resulted in his being promoted to the rank of Brigadier in the rebel army. They also say that he is to have a full brigade of cavalry with which to harass our flanks and rear, and make raids up the railroad this winter.

General Seward is on the lookout for him at this point and General Stevenson at Harper’s Ferry. He probably will not have so easy a time in making his raids he has had heretofore, for he may come in contact with some of our veteran cavalry.”

Solid war-time issue, with fine coverage of the Battle of Nashville. In protective sleeve w/white card backing.    [jp]
