Shown is an original & historic old newspaper, offered to enhance your collectible interest: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Louisiana, Jan. 18, 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 which surrendered 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.

The Crescent speaks of the many theories put forth by the Lincolnites to account for their defeats in the present war--every one as far from the truth as the North will ever be from conquering the South if the war should last a century... Also: "Letters From Baton Rouge" which takes over a full column. And: "From The Seat of War In Virginia".
There are additional war-related items on pages 2 & 3 also with most of the bkpg. Ads is an illustrated one for: "Negroes For Sale" (see).
