Daily Citizen, July 2, 1863, single sheet newspaper printed on wallpaper. Although an early reprodictin, still nice to have an example at 5% of the original, c1870’s, VG. The Daily Citizen was edited and published at Vicksburg, Mississippi, by J. M. Swords. As the Union seige of the strategic city wore on, his supply of paper ran out, so the publisher resorted to the use of wallpaper, as did several other Southern editors during the rebellion. On this substitute Swords printed the following dates: June 16, 18, 20, 27, 30, and July 2, 1863. Each was a single sheet, four columns wide, printed on the back of the wallpaper. On July 4, Vicksburg surrendered, the publisher fled, and the Union forces found the type of the Citizen still standing. They replaced two-thirds of the last column with other matter already in type, added this note “JULY 4, 1863 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 bring his dinner with him.”
