Long Description:
The plaque reads:

The Memphis Daily Appeal

From this spot, press and type of the Appeal were loaded on a freight car at Main and Madison in early morning, June 6, 1862, just before a naval battle. This paper kept the journalistic flag of the Confederacy flying from Grenada, Miss., then Jackson, Meridian, Atlanta, and Montgomery until Apr. 6, 1865, when . U.S. troops destroyed the type at Columbus, Ga. The press was hidden and used here again, Nov. 5, 1865.
