THE DAILY CITIZEN. THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1863
Published by J.M. Swords, Proprietor, Vicksburg, Ms., 1863
About this Item
Folio broadside, printed on wallpaper. Old folds, closed tear in blank margin of one fold, some spotting. Very good. The newspapers printed on wallpaper in Vicksburg during its siege were widely noted at the time, and the Union troops who took possession of the city on July 4 completed and distributed the last issue standing in type. Numerous facsimile versions were published later. This is the first reproduction issue, probably produced in the North as a commemoration later in 1863. Brigham identifies this as the first reproduction, noting its minor variations from the original, mainly the substitution of the article, "Recent Federal Losses at Vicksburg," in the last column. Brigham details some twenty facsimile versions. Brigham, "Wall-Paper Newspapers of the Civil War" in BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ESSAYS FOR WILBERFORCE EAMES (New York, 1924), pp.203-9.
