Published two weeks prior to R.E. Lee’s surrender at Appomattox and two months prior to Kirby Smith’s surrender of the Confederate Trans-Mississippi, this Galveston newspaper remains resoundingly upbeat concerning the Confederate course. The front page features opinions from French journals and the London Standard resoundingly supportive and optimistic concerning Confederate chances of victory.

The Tri-Weekly view of General Sherman’s recent activities are summed up in the following items:

“The Mobile Tribune says truly that Mr. Lincoln forgot his usual cunning, when he sent our [Peace} Commissioners to frankly tell us that abject subjugation is what we have got to make up our minds to. That word of his has been as good as a hundred thousand men to our armies. It will fire the hearts of our people—make them as one. That is good for us. It secures our independence, and we welcome it more than we would news of the total annihilation of Sherman.”

“General Sherman boasts of having taken in his trip through Georgia seven thousand slaves. The motive on the part of the troops in doing this was, as avowed while they were in Milledgeville, to sell them as substitutes—saying, for a good healthy fellow they could get from five to seven hundred dollars apiece.”

Fine Texas Civil War newspaper collectible in protective sleeve w/white card backing. [jp][ph:L]
