CITIZEN SOLDIER, Norwich, Vermont, September 4,1840 "Devoted To the Interests of the Militia, Military Science & National Defense" as noted in the masthead, where also is found their motto: "In Times Of Peace, Prepare For War". Lasted but 52 issues, 9 1/2 by 12 1/2 in., a rare & uncommon title. Other than a little (typical) foxing, in great condition. This issue has a 2 1/2 column back page Biography of Benedict Arnold, providing a mid-19th century glimpse of how he was viewed at the time. Nice to have within a rare military newspaper. Also included is much on West Point, an article headed: "Daguerreotype Likeness", and another titled: "The Importance Of National Defense".
