eBay Fixed Price Item # 371737868238

Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: SUNDAY DELTA, New Orleans, Louisiana, February 16, 1862 * Rare Confederate title * From the deep South * President Jefferson Davis 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 good reporting on the Civil War, including: "What t... See More
