New Orleans during the Confederacy...

Item # 645023

February 19, 1862

THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Feb. 19, 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.
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.
