This issue was printed just 2 1/2 months before Louisiana would secede from the Union and become part of the Confederacy.
Not surprisingly there are some war-related articles including: "The Policy of the South" "Important News From South Carolina" "Great Excitement at Charleston" "Attempted Removal of Govern't Arms" and other items.
Page 11 has no fewer than 49 illustrated ship ads.
Twelve pages, various minor margins tears, nice condition.
