Richmond: Macfarlane & Fergusson, 1863. This issue contains more from Robert Howison's History of the War, as well as "The Fire Legend -- A Nightmare" from An unpublished ms. of the Late Edgar A. Poe [which turns out to have been wrongly attributed to Poe!] , as well as material concerning Fantine from Les Miserables [or known colloquially among the Confederates as Lee's Miserables]; and, in the Editor's Table, "The Turn the War Has Taken" and from "New Works", "The Life of Stonewall Jackson".and "Infantry Sword Exercise".The Southern Library Messenger was the most significant magazine in the South from the time of its founding by Thomas White in 1834 until its last issue in 1864. From 1860 on, when George W. Bagby took it over, the Messenger became a secessionist propaganda tool: "Severing all ties with the northern literary establishment, Bagby published 'purely Southern articles...that smack of the soil," as he wrote in his June 1860 "Editor's Table." During the American Civil war, the journal published accounts of battles, and criticized both the North and the Confederate government, especially its president, Jefferson Davis. As economic deteriorated in Virginia during the war, the journal ceased publication in 1864." An invaluable original source. In original wrappers. (Crandall 5266).
