From Confederate New Orleans...
Item # 672425
May 29, 1861
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. 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 column heads on the war are: "Noble Old Virginia" "Telegraphic News" which has many war-related dispatches; "The Killing of Ellsworth" "Army Correspondence" "James W. Jackson" and more.
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine margin and archivally strengthened at the spine as well, a few stray ink marks to the ftpg.
