January 23, 1862
THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan. 23, 1862
* Rare Confederate title from the deep South
* News from Richmond, Pensacola, forts Henry & Donelson
Front page has: "Letter From Richmond" "From Pensacola". Inside has: "The Government & the War" "Late Northern Intelligence""From Our Army in the West" "Affairs at Forts Henry & Donelson" and other war reports.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine from disbinding, evenly toned, generally nice condition.
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.
