Rare NEW ORLEANS LA Louisiana Deep South CONFEDERATE Civil War 1862 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 391656442270

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE DAILY DELTA, Louisiana, February 7, 1862 * Rare Confederate 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. Shortly thereafter Benjamin Butler moved in and took control of the city, it surrendering without a fight. So "Confederate" issues from New Orleans are limited to those published between Louisiana's secession from the Union on January 26, 1861 and the end of April, 1862, just a brief 15 month period. The front page has some war reports with items headed: "Secessionism in Baltimore" ""From the Seat of War I... See More
