Confederate New Orleans...

Item # 697047

January 31, 1862

THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Jan. 31, 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 articles within: "Not Coming" "More Enterprise Needed" "A Speech Worth Reading" "The Federal Grand Army Advancing Slowly" "The Battle of Fishing Creek" "The War Ships That Are Wanted" "Northern Intelligence" and more.
Four pages, binding indents at the blank spine and a bit irregular at the spine, otherwise nice condition.
