Vicksburg Daily Citizen U.S. Sanitary Commission Ration Bag
We are very excited to offer reproductions of one of the most famous newspapers of the Civil War.  When newsprint was in short supply during the siege of Vicksburg the resourceful publisher of the Daily Citizen resorted to printing on the back of unused wallpaper.  Our reproductions of the July 2nd, 1863 issue feature handmade, block printed reproduction wallpaper.  The July 2nd issue is the last issue printed before the publisher fled the city prior to its capture.  Many extant July 2nd issues feature a note added on July 4th by Federal soldiers who found the press still set with type and printed them as souvenirs, however we have chosen to copy the original July 2nd issue that was distributed to citizens (Including the typo in the title that the originals had.).  Wallpaper patterns will vary. US Sanitary Commission ration bags, made off of the original pattern from enameled cloth with a cotton drill drawstring sleeve. Stamped USSC, and closed with a cotton twill tape per the original specs.
