Just a minor correction but maybe significant.The port of New Orleans was closed from May 31, 1861 through March 6, 1865.There are no entries in the passenger lists microfilm between these dates so I am assuming this was the actual time span of the closing.BTW I have gone through all of the passenger lists from 23 Dec 1846 through the closing 31 May 1861 collecting info on any ships coming from Italy to NO.One day I'll get my act togther and post this.
