Historic Gen. Stonewall Jackson Funeral Edition Lexington Gazette May 20, 1863 For Sale

Historic Gen. Stonewall Jackson Funeral Edition Lexington Gazette May 20, 1863

THE GENERAL T. J. STONEWALL JACKSON FUNERAL EDITION OF THE LEXINGTON GAZETTE, MAY 20, 1863. ONE OF, IF NOT THE, RAREST AND MOST DESIRABLE OF ALL CONFEDERATE NEWSPAPERS PRINTED IN THE COURSE OF THE CIVIL WAR. This newspaper, original in every respect, is worthy of being prominently featured in a major Civil War sale by a national sale gallery. However, in order to offer it this month in conjunction with the observance of the 150th Anniversary of the death of General Stonewall Jackson (May 1863), I have decided to make it available through . The paper was originally mailed to S. W. Lyle, Timber Ridge VA (written across the top in period pencil), and there is residue evidence of the missing Confederate States of America stamp, which has been lost over the years. The paper measures approximately 11 7/8 x 16 7/8" closed, four pages total. The first accounts of the funeral of Gen. Jackson are on the inside left page. Along with the funeral content, there are slave ads military ads, etc. According to a history site about the newspaper, in June 1864, the Gazette suspended publication altogether, as Union troops then occupying Lexington scattered the paper’s type into the street. I have not been able to find a single other extant copy of this historic issue ever offered for public sale and only one in institutional collections. Samuel Woods Lyle was born in Rockbridge County in 1798 and died in 1881. He was buried in the Timber Ridge Presbyterian Church graveyard. The paper has some scattered light staining primarily in the blank margins, there is one very small hole in the front page, there is scatterd other wear, and there are fold lines, but overall a very nice copy of this rarity. This is a must-have for the serious Stonewall Jackson and Lexington VA collector!!!
