Vol. 6.—No. 301. Four page, 19” x 29, 8 columns. Exhibits fold marks, and 4” tear along upper margin vertical center fold, plus chipping at the extremities. Somewhat fragile. Else good & entirely legible.

The front page features a lengthy piece on the first’s day fight at Gettysburg (July 1st), treating the gallant action of the 149th PA Infantry opposing the rebels at the railroad cut near McPherson’s ride. Along the wounding of their commander, Lieut. Colonel Dwight, afterwards taken to David Wills’ house on the Gettysburg “Diamond.”

Other stories include “A Gossip On Morgan’s Raid,” and of General Grant and “Abandoned Plantations” on his road to Vicksburg. Most interesting are extracts from various southern newspapers: “Another Draft in the South” (Richmond Inquirer)—“The Beginning of Chaos [The New York Draft Riots], Richmond Inquirer—“Port Hudson” (Montgomery Mail)—“The Fall of Vicksburg” (The Atlanta Appeal)—“The Enemy on the James River” (Richmond Enquirer)—“From Jackson, Miss.”—“Reported Death of Gen. Osterhaus” (Montgomery Advertiser)—“Charleston May Be Captured….Fight Until Driven from the Street” (Charleston Courier).

When Shelby Foote penned the line, “Long remember the summer of ‘63”…..he wasn’t kidding. As this edition of the Philadelphia Press reveals, considerable action was afoot that summer, not merely at Gettysburg. Considerable anxiety as well—especially at the South.

An excellent summer newspaper from that highly memorable year.   [jp][ph:L]
