Overview

This application is recommended for ages 12+.

The Extra!!! Edition of the American Civil War Gazette contains back issues as well as additional articles that did not appear in the daily edition.

July 1862 saw the close of the Seven Days Battles with the Battle of Malvern Hill, and saw little action on the battlefield relative to the previous or following month. However, the newspapers in July 1862 were filled with official reports on the Seven Days Battles and continuous discussion as to the importance of McClellan's retreat to Harrison's Landing.

News of McClellan's retreat reached the U.K., and as the prospect of a longer war increased, talk of intervention by France, the U.K. or both increased, and was particularly favored by the South.

In addition to the celebration of the second 4th of July since the war began, the continuing shelling and siege of Vicksburg featured prominently in the columns of papers in both the North and the South.

Also of importance was the response to Lincoln's call for 300,000 3-year enlistments which spurred significant debate as to whether there would be a draft. The New York Times followed the progress of the recruiting efforts daily.
