eBay Fixed Price Item # 393641716404

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, May 28, 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.

The front page has a: "Proclamation - To the People of the Confederates States" for a day of thanksgiving & prayer, signed in type: Jefferson ... See More
