John Gordon Cashman published the first edition of the Vicksburg Evening Post on May 4, 1883, in a second-floor office on Washington Street. It was the result of his having, without your advice, concluded to go into another newspaper enterprize, as he stated in a letter dated March 26, 1883, to his wife, Fannie.
