New Orleans La. Apr. 24, 1862. Double-circle ds and "Steam 7" straightline hs on incoming buff cover to Carroll Hoy & Co., ms. "B/L" (bill of lading), usual filing pinholes

A VERY FINE AND IMPORTANT HISTORICAL COVER, CARRIED BY STEAMBOAT INTO NEW ORLEANS AT THE CLIMAX OF THE BATTLE OF NEW ORLEANS.

April 24 marked the climax of the Battle of New Orleans in which Federal gunboats under Admiral Farragut's command effectively defeated Confederate defending forces. The refusal of Mayor John Monroe and Confederate Gen. Mansfield Lovell to formally surrender, coupled with Lovell's decision to withdraw his troops, resulted in days of military skirmishing and widespread chaos as citizens of the undefended city panicked. On April 25 Farragut's forces anchored off the New Orleans waterfront watched as the wharf was set afire by the city's own residents - a young girl wrote in her diary "We are conquered but not subdued." (The Civil War: Day by Day, p. 204).

On May 1 Maj. General Benjamin F. Butler began his command and administration of New Orleans. Butler's harsh command earned him the sobriquet "Beast" Butler. After April 24 there was no regular Confederate postal activity in New Orleans, which effectively makes this a last day cover of the most important port city's post office in the Confederacy. During Federal occupation letters were smuggled between residents of New Orleans and relations in the Confederate States.

With 1983 P.F. certificate
