Memphis Daily Appeal

From this spot press and type of the Appeal were loaded on a freight car at Main and Madison in early morning, June 6, 1862, just before a naval battle. This paper kept the journalistic flag of the Confederacy flying from Grenada, Miss., then Jackson, Meridian, Atlanta and Montgomery until April 6, 1865, when U.S. troops destroyed the type at Columbus, Ga. The press was hidden and used here again, Nov. 5, 1865.
