    The illustrated newspaper Southern Illustrated News was the Confederacy’s rather rough version of Harper’s Weekly, The New-York Illustrated News and Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper. It was published by Ayres & Wade in Richmond as of 1862 to fill the void left by the unavailability of illustrated newspapers from the North. At its peak, this paper had no more than 20,000 subscribers. Printed on poor quality paper, it has become extremely hard to find.
