Very Rare CONFEDERATE New Bern NC North Carolina 1861 Civil War Old Newspaper. Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: DAILY PROGRESS, New Bern, North Carolina, August 17, 1861. Very rare Confederate title from North Carolina. Certainly one of the less common titles from the Confederacy, as rarely have I seen it offered. This coastal town didn't remain Confederate for very long as it fell to General Burnside in April, 1862.

We long since predicted that the Yankees would be fighting among themselves before the war was over, and sure enough it has commenced....Also on the ftpg: "From Washington--Weakness of the Hessian Army" From Washington--Inhuman Treatment of our Prisoners--List of their Names, Etc. Plus there is also a: Proclamation By the President concerning alien enemies, signed in type: Jefferson Davis (see images). This is followed by: "Regulations Respecting Alien Enemies". A few other items as well. The back page is entirely taken up with ads and notices.
