The Daily Delta was one of a handful of newspapers being published in the bustling port of New Orleans on the eve of Civil War. This particular issue was published eight days before the Confederate attack on Ft. Sumter. Front page headlines reflect the tension, with a dispatch concerning Ft. Sumter. Also, “The Split in America”—Affairs in Washington—France and America.” Interior columns feature “war” commentary from other New Orleans Journals—The Crescent, the Bulletin, the Bee and Picayune.

The “City Intelligence” sections contains anecdotes with headlines such as: “A Charitable Act”—Rather Earnest”—“A Proper Commitment”—“Dangerously Stabbed”—“Found Drowned”. Along with “River Intelligence,” dealing with Mississippi and Ohio River shipping; and “Marine Intelligence” dealing with ocean travel and shipping to ports such as Lisbon, London, Bremen, Glasgow, Marseilles, Liverpool, Havre and St. Petersburg. With an increasing number of regimental recruiting notices. The rear page consists entirely of official notices and laws enacted by the new Confederate States of America Congress, recently convened in Richmond.

Fine New Orleans Civil War newspaper collectible. In protective sleeve, w/white card backing.  [jp]
