Mobile Daily News (Mobile, Alabama) Apr. 19, 1865.
Like the Arkansas newspaper listed in this year's Adopt-a-Book, this Alabama newspaper is quite scarce. The Mobile Daily News was a daily newspaper that began right at the end of the Civil War and lasted five months. Our issue is vol. 1, no. 6. Even though it was issued four days after Lincoln’s assassination, the news had not reach Mobile at that time.
