Additional Information The Church Intelligencer is "the accredited organ of the Bishops of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, and the University of the South." Frederick Fitzgerald edited the Intelligencer, which was one of three Protestant Episcopal Church newspapers being published by the Confederacy at the beginning of the war. The first edition was printed on 14 March 1860 in eight folio pages. On 6 June 1861 Fitzgerald resigned as editor to act as one of fifteen clergymen the Diocese of North Carolina sent to the Confederate front as a chaplain. T.S. Mott later ran the paper, and he hired apprentice Cornelius Bryant Edwards, who later edited Baptist publications. The Intelligencer was published in Raleigh, North Carolina. The paper suspended publication from March through September 1864, when it moved to Charlotte, North Carolina. The Intelligencer suspended publication again from May to August 1865, and it ceased publication in 1867. A popular, reprinted book printed by the Intelligencer in 1861 is "A Catechism to be Taught Orally to Those who Cannot Read; Designed Especially for the Instruction of Slaves."
