Among the front page items are: "Federal Evacuation of the Kanawha" "Floyd Marching for Kentucky" "From Arizona" "From New Mexico" "A Navy of Our Own" "Confederate Congress" & more.

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. Four pages, minor mend at the bottom, blank margin, very nice condition.
