From “The Fourth Year”
of Southern Independence…
Confederate Imprint CONFEDERATE STATES ALMANAC FOR THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 1864; THE FOURTH YEAR OF THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA. Mobile: (1863). 24p., wrappers. [Parrish-5299].
Calculations made at University of Alabama. With important events in Confederate history to date, showing a surprising number of Confederate battle victories.
Among the helpful household tips are recipes for corn beer and blackberry syrup, along with remedies for the “staggers” and red ants. Includes the usual almanac entries for each day, moon phases, etc. Back cover includes an ad for a bookseller and a poetic ad for a rag buyer.
Light margin notes on front wrappers; splitting at bottom; otherwise very good for an ephemeral piece of Confederate history.
