Confederate newspaper from Louisiana... Anti-Lincoln editorial...



Item # 697693

January 05, 1862

SUNDAY DELTA, New Orleans, Jan. 5, 1862  

* 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 front page items are: "Exportation of War Material From England--Second Proclamation..." "President Davis's Message In England" "What the Morning Journals Say" & more.
Reports inside include: "New Mexican News" "Later From Arizona" "Headquarters First Division" and more.
Four pages, archivally strengthened at the irregular spine, minor wear at margins.
