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.

The front page has some war reports with items headed: "Secessionism in Baltimore" ""From the Seat of War I... See More
