One page, double-sided newspaper measuring 20 x 24”, mounted on heavy card paper against a medium gray matte, in shrink wrap. This legendary Memphis newspaper was moved out of  town just prior to its capture by Union troops in June 1862. Owner Benjamin Dill continued printing his paper while on the lam in towns such as Atlanta and Montgomery, Ala., before being captured by Wilson’s cavalry in the winter of 1865. Forced to sign a “seriocomic” for $100,000 for renouncing the paper’s Confederate sympathies and pledging loyalty to the Union. Following the war, publisher Dill returned to re-establish his newspaper in Memphis. 

In excellent condition, containing much June 1863 news concerning the Union siege of Vicksburg.  Makes for a superb wall display.
