    Confederate Newspapers from Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. Three rare issues, as follows:
    The Weekly New Iberian, Louisiana, May 11, 1861- Four pages, never bound, dampstained, minor paper loss.
    The Daily Clarion, Meridian, Mississippi, August 4, 1863- Two page singlesheet, very good condition.
    Chattanooga Daily Rebel, Selma, Alabama, April 15, 1865- A fascinating little one page paper and one of the last, if not the last, issue of this "mobile" paper that, during the course of the war, was published in three states, five towns, and even in a railroad boxcar while traveling with Confederate soldiers. Its publisher, Henry Watterson, went on to found the Louisville Courier-Journal. The condition is only fair with weakness and separation at the folds but its historical significance far outweighs concerns of condition.
    Also included in this lot is a prewar issue of the Galveston Weekly News dated May 29, 1860. At that point in Texas history, it was the dominant newspaper. Four pages, dampstaining and weak at folds. Shortly after the Civil War, a Confederate veteran named A. H. Belo took over this paper and expanded into Dallas starting the Dallas Morning News as a satellite paper. The publishing empire he founded is still flourishing today.
