Rare NEW ORLEANS LA Louisiana Deep South CONFEDERATE Civil War 1861 Newspaper


eBay Fixed Price Item # 392278864871

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Sept. 25, 1861 * 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.

The front page includes: "Arms" "From the Seat of War in Virginia" "From Our Army in the West" "Incidents of the Battle of Carnifax Ferry" a... See More
