Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, May 29, 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.

Among the column heads on the war are: "Noble Old Virginia" "Telegraphic News" which has many war-related dispatches; "The Killing of Ellswort... See More
