It consisted of articles written by Southern Soldiers, officers, politicians and civilians.

This item is Volume 1, Number 5, published in May 1876, which consisted of seven different articles: "Reminiscences of the Confederate States Navy by Cpt C. W.

Regiment", "Correction of the Incident in Reference to General Pickett", and "Address of General D. H. Hill before the Mecklenburg, North Carolina Historical Society". There is also a section on "Editorial Paragraphs" and "Book Notices". At the back of the book are several pages of advertisements. Pages are numbered 331-402. Measures 9 3/4" x 6".
