New Orleans during the Confederacy...
Item # 645023
February 19, 1862
THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Feb. 19, 1862 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.
Among the articles are: "Sharp Sabres For Cavalry" "Breckinridge & Brigade Safe" "From Our Army in the West" "The Situation in the West" "Further Particulars of Our Reverses in North Carolina" "The Situation" and more.
Four pages, even toning, a bit irregular at the spine, nice condition.
