Rare New Orleans LA Louisiana Deep South Confederate Civil War 1862 Newspaper. Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: THE DAILY DELTA, New Orleans, Louisiana April 17, 1862.
Rare Confederate publication 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.
Notable content on the front page includes stacked one column heads: "Special Dispatches The Delta" Northern Reports" "Tremendous Federal Losses" "Four Federal Generals Killed" "Federals Retiring from Tennessee. Also under "Federal Naval Preparations" is a lengthy communication from the Sec.
Of Navy to Congress, signed in type: Gideon Welles. Page 2 has an editorial: "Concentrate Our Resources", plus a lengthy report headed: "The Battle of the 6th of April". Also has bits of war news under "Telegraphed To The Delta".
Four pages, a bit irregular at the spine margin due to disbinding affecting just a few words, otherwise good condition. Please Note: All of our offerings are 100% authentic! We do not offer reprints or reproductions of any kind. They are guaranteed to be original!
