Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, April 16, 1862 * Battle of Shiloh - Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee * Rare title from the deep South Truly Confederate newspapers from New Orleans are very difficult to find, as Admiral Farragut entered the mouth of the Mississippi in mid-April, 1862 and finally took New Orleans on April 28.
