War Between the States

Eyewitness accounts of the Monitor & Merrimac!

4 pages. The Monitor and the Merrimac and the defeat of the Cumberland, eyewirness accounts of the famous naval encounter between ironclads at Hampton Roads, Va. News of action at Island No. 10 on the Tennessee River. The Confederate States Zouaves, numerous Confederate military ads, and much, much more. Couple of very small edge tears. Very fine issue with rare Southern account of the Monitor & Merrimac!

Footnote: Confederate newspapers from New Orleans are quite rare. The Crescent City was seized by Admiral Farragut on April 25, 1862, with the formal surrender occuring on April 29th. Shortly afterwards General Benjamin F. Butler occupied the city, and it remained in Federal hands for the remainder of the war. Confederate issues therefore are limited to a brief 16 month period, from the secession of Louisiana in January 1861, to the capture of New Orleans in late April 1862.
