Confederate newspaper from Louisiana...
Item # 673490
February 02, 1862
SUNDAY DELTA, New Orleans, Feb. 2, 1862 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 front page items are: "A Month with the Rebels" "What the Morning Journals Say" among some literary items.
Inside has: "Gen. Beauregard at Columbus" "A Diabolical Manifesto" "From Lincolndom Via Richmond: "The Burnside Expedition" "Skirmish Near Occoquan, Va." " "Fort Pulaski Dodged By the Enemy" and more.
Four pages, evenly toned, irregular at the spine margin
