Very Rare Confederate Battle Of Missionary Ridge 1863 Civil War Tenn. Broadside For Sale

Very Rare Confederate Battle Of Missionary Ridge 1863 Civil War Tenn. Broadside

VERY Rare CONFEDERATE Battle of Missionary Ridge 1863 Civil War Tenn. BROADSIDE (Note: additional images are located below the description) DAILY REBEL EXTRA. A truly terrific & exceedingly rare little broadside (printed on one side only), being a small "Extra" edition of the Famous "Chattanooga Daily Rebel" newspaper from the Confederacy. See the bottom of this listing for the interesting history of this "traveling" newspaper. This broadside measures just 4 by 5 3/4 inches, untrimmed with wide margins.

The headings are: "Another Desperate Battle" "Our Army Driven Back" "General Bragg Falls Back to Chickamauga" with the balance of the issue being a report datelined from Chickamauga, Nov. 25, 1863 signed in type by: Braxton Bragg, announcing: "After several unsuccessful assaults on our lines to-day, the enemy carried the left centre. About 4 o'clock the whole left gave way in considerable disorder. The right maintained its ground, repelling every attack. I am withdrawing all to this point." (see).

This is the Battle of Missionary Ridge which was fought at Chattanooga, making this Chattanooga "Extra" the very best to report this Confederate news, and dated the same day as the battle as well.

This issue has some damage with a hole near the middle repaired on the reverse affecting some words, with a much smaller one towards the bottom and one near the top, the latter two not affecting any text (see). Otherwise nice.

History of the "Chattanooga Daily Rebel":
Franc M Paul printed the first issue of The Rebel on August 1, 1862. It continued until April 1865, when the Union army captured its plant at Selma Alabama after it had eluded the Union troops by moving from Chattanooga to Marietta, Georgia, then to Griffin, Georgia, and finally to Selma, Alabama. Ironically Paul served his apprenticeship under Parson Brownlow at the Knoxville Whig. Unlike his counterpart Paul sought to have a paper directed to the Confederate army. On August 21, 1863 federal General John T Wilder’s “lightning brigade” began shelling Chattanooga. Paul arranged with a railroad engineer to switch two freight cars to the rear of the Bank of Tennessee building during the night. All but one press and all the paper and other supplies were loaded and the cars were reattached to a train headed to Atlanta. When the train stopped at Marietta, the "Rebel" disembarked and established themselves there. The paper remained in Marietta until the advance of Sherman’s army. The paper was later threatened by the displeasure of General Braxton Bragg who was criticized harshly after the Battle of Chickamauga. Bragg banned the paper among the Confederate troops. The ban was removed only when the offending reporter left the paper. By spring of 1864, Sherman’s army had reached the outskirts of Marietta., resulting in the move to Griffin. However by September Sherman began menacing Griffin. The Rebel made its final move to Selma where it active until the final days of the war. On April 2, 1865 the Federals under General James H Wilson captured Selma. The office of the paper and the presses escaped the burning but Paul was arrested and placed in s prisoner stockade. Union officers used the Rebel’s office and pressed to print a small daily paper called the Yankee Cavalier, which they published during the ten days Wilson Occupied Selma. The office, presses, and supplies were destroyed by Wilson’s soldiers. Mysteriously the Rebel appeared one last time. On April 27, 1865 it announced the armistice that had ended the hostilities. No one has determined who published this resurrected Rebel.
