    [Civil War] The Daily Delta Newspaper. Vol. 17, No. 120, four pages, 17.25" x 22.25", New Orleans, April 19, 1862. Printed the day after the attack began on Forts Jackson and St. Phillip in the opening stage of the expedition to capture New Orleans and two weeks after the conclusion of the Battle of Shiloh. A very thorough account of Shiloh is located on page two and takes up three and one-half columns. There appears to be an advertisement cut out of the front page (3.5" x 4"). Edges are toned with some slight tearing at the top left margin. Some foxing and chipping along the right edge. Good condition.
