The Record of News, History and Literature
West & Johnson
October 8, 1863
Volume 1, number 17
The Record was as close as the South got to a weekly news-magazine. Its masthead features the Confederate seal. This is the most collectible individual issue, containing General Lee’s official report of the “Pennsylvania Campaign” and much additional material on the Battle of Gettysburg. It merged into the short-lived The Age, also published in Richmond, in January 1864.
