The paper began publication in 1848 but ceased operations on May 9, 1861, in the midst of the secession crisis, with publisher James W. Hunnicutt bowing to public pressure over his pro-Union views. He resumed publication on May 9, 1862, after the Union army entered Fredericksburg. When the troops withdrew from the city at the end of August 1862, Hunnicutt fled the city.

Along with numerous “Christian” items, this Fredericksburg newspaper contains war-related stories with the following headlines: “The Last Resort of Rebels—Their Programme,” “The Call for More Troops,” and “Hanging of Federal Scouts by Rebels.” Text of the latter item as follows:

“Louisville, July 3. A passenger just in from the south reports that General Mitchell detailed 55 men from different regiments [Union] for scouting purposes. They were captured by the rebels, carried to Atlanta, and there hung—One of them Robert Buffmin, formerly of Salem, Mass., now of the 2nd Ohio Regimen, Col Norton, made speech on the scaffold, saying that he “considered it no ignominy to die for his country even in that manner.”

In protective sleeve, w/white card backing.  [jp] [ph:L]
