ATTACK ON FORT WAGNER Confederate newspaper, The Daily Huntsville Confederate, 2pp. folio, Marietta, Geo., Sept. 1, 1863. A hurried printing on thin 'secession' paper reporting on a variety of actions, including the continued fighting around Fort Wagner: "...After a furious bombardment of Wagner, the enemy , who had massed a large force behind their trench, advanced, before the hour of relieving pickets, upon our rifle pits in overwhelming numbers. A number of our pickets quickly surrounded, fell into their hands, and the rest retreated to the fort...". The paper also includes an address of President Jefferson Davis to the army as well as dispatches from Chattanooga, Winchester, Va., as well as advertisements offering rewards for runaway slaves and deserting soldiers. Much more good content. Uneven toning, creases and a few marginal tears and chips, else very good.
