Biographical/Historical Note

Biographical information about Raleigh and Frances Edge Farmer has not been determined.

The Daily Citizen was edited and published at Vicksburg, Mississippi, by J. M. Swords. Like several other Southern newspapers of the Civil War period its stock of newsprint paper became exhausted and the publisher resorted to the use of wallpaper. On this substitute he printed the following known issues: June 16, 18, 20, 27, 30, and July 2, 1863. Each was a single sheet, four columns wide, printed on the back of the wallpaper. Additional historical information on the Daily Citizen has not been determined.
