Abstract:

Chiefly published reports, 1863-1864, of Civil War battles, political news, and speculation and rumor clipped from Charleston, S.C., newspapers, including Charleston Mercury, and others.

Topics discussed include daily updates on the bombardment of Charleston; battles and campaigns around the U.S.; ironclad ships; progress of the war; lists of released prisoners identified by name; also includes jokes, letters, and news, many of which were reprinted from newspapers elsewhere in the Confederate and Northern states.

Clippings discuss political developments, such as rumors of diplomatic recognition of the Confederacy in Europe; several essays on slavery and slave-holding, including a reminder to slaveholders that despite evidence of poor treatment and mismangement, the labor of conscripted slaves was vital in the construction of earthworks to protect the S.C. coast; and an urgent plea requesting that subscribers pay bills to the newspaper on time.

Later items, ca. 1870s and 1890s, discuss race relations, African-American soldiers, social unrest, and political news during Reconstruction; the death and funeral of Robert E. Lee in 1870; and news of Confederate veteran reunions during 1890s.
