Vol. XIV. No. 126. 4 pp., 23.5” x 17, seven columns. Exhibits slight and slight yellowing. Else VG. In protective sleeve.

By September 1861, due to the Union blockage and the exigences of war, the Daily Crescent had been reduced from 8 pages to 4. Its first page featured notices concerning numerous military units, including the Point coupee Cavalry. The Point Coupee Cavalry, Plauche Guard, City Guards, Off to Virginia! {wanted for immediate service thirty men for Company “C” of the Louisiana Guard), The British Guard. Also General Orders No. 23 for the First Division Louisiana Volunteer State Troops. As well as News from Gen. Hardee’s Column, and the Army of the Southwest (commanded by Gen. Albert Sidney Johnston.

Page two continues with war notices, including an appeal for 44 males nurse to go to Virginia, while noting that Horace Greely of the New York Herald does not particularly admire “Stars and Bars” and very seriously objects to it waving triumphantly in sight of the Capitol. Pages three and four contain notices of Steamboat departures, considerably reduced and restricted to the lower Mississippi River ports no further north than Memphis. Review of the Markets indicates slackened activity: “Cotton…We did not hear of a sale today. Receipts 71 bales., Tobacco…nothing reported, Sugar…there have been some small receipts, but demand appears limited, and we have heard of no sales.

By late early fall 1861, feeling the effects of the blockade, the world class sea-port of New Orleans is clearly reeling as it girds for 1862, unaware of the its capture to following in April 1862. A solid Civil War New Orleans Newspaper collectible. [jp] [ph:L]
