I love reading the Press-Register accounts from yesteryear. I especially like reading about editions from the Civil War years. It's interesting to me to read so many entries that show that life in Mobile was going on pretty much as usual even though the war was raging. I'm looking forward to seeing how these reports evolve as the war gets closer to Mobile--maybe in reports during 1863-1864. I hate seeing the Press-Register go to only a 3-day publication but I understand why.
