The independent South. September 9, 1858

About

A.P. Burr, A. G. Murray’s assistant editor at the American Union, left to establish his own paper, Independent South, in 1858. The publication aligned itself as a State’s Rights paper and reported the activities of pro-secessionists. In the July 21, 1859 issue of the paper, Senator Alfred Iverson’s famous two-hour secession speech was reported word for word. The Independent South continued to publish until 1861 when Burr left to join the Confederate army.
