I've just loaded three files of articles from the Memphis Daily Appeal for 1861--

March-July 1861-- http://www.uttyler.edu/vbetts/memphis%20appeal%20mar-jy%2061.htm
August-October 1861-- http://www.uttyler.edu/vbetts/memphis%20appeal%20aug-oct%2061.htm
November-December 1861--http://www.uttyler.edu/vbetts/memphis%20appeal%20nov-dec%2061.htm

Lots of information on theater, hospitals, tableaux vivants, outfitting units, textile sales, crime, camp life, flag presentations, fiesty Southern women, vicious Yankee Hessians, and an amazing range of ethnicities in the port city of Memphis.

Still working on the first part of 1862, up until the Appeal has to pack up and head to Grenada, MS.
