An accounting of the United States naval force in 1815...



Item # 617703

June 3, 1815

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Maryland, June 3, 1815  Inside has an article: "Navy of the United States" which includes a half page chart of the ships of the United States, columns for "rate" "Name of Vessels" "Commanders" "Stations, etc.". This is followed by a smaller chart with text headed: "List for 1812--Before the War".
There is over a full page of: "War Events: Or Things Incidental to the Late War" and a letter signed in type: Napoleon, plus "Trial of Gen. Jackson" which takes 3 1/2 pages and ends mid-sentence, continuing in the next issue.
Complete in 16 pages, 6 by 9.5 inches, scattered lite foxing, otherwise is in good condition.

This newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century. As noted in Wikipedia it: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
