THE RARE ALTERED VICKSBURG CITIZEN OF JULY 2ND, 1863 ALTERED BY UNION TROOPS ON JULY 4TH, 1863

3617 - THE DAILY CITIZEN, was edited and published by J. W. Swords in Vicksburg, MS. Like several other Southern newspapers when newsprint was exhausted they used wallpaper to print their newspapers. Sword is known to use wallpaper on his June 16, 18, 20, 27, 30, and July 2nd, 1863 issues. On July 4th, 1863 Vicksburg surrendered and the publisher fled and Union troops found the type still set from the July 2nd issue and altered the last column and printed a new edition. The new edition contained the following message, "Two days bring about great changes. The banner of the Union floats over Vicksburg. Gen. Grant has 'caught the rabbit'. He has dined in Vicksburg, and he did not bring his dinner with him. The "Citizen" lives to see it. For the last time it appears on "Wall-paper". No longer will it eulogize the luxury of mule meat and fricasseed kitten-urge Southern warriors to such died-never more. This is the last wall-paper edition, and is, excepting this note, from the types as we found them. It will be valuable hereafter as a curiosity." Total paper size 13" X 19.5", typeset size 9 1/8" X 16 7/8," issue matches perfectly the check sheet published by the Library of Congress for legitimate issues as there have been many copies over the years which is included with this paper. The wallpaper is pink roses on a blue background. Moderate tone, small blems, fine for type. Extremely rare. From an old collection of a University professor for many years. Accompanied by the Library of Congress check sheet for the variables that distinguish genuine papers from reprints.................................................$3,250.00
