From the year of American independence...
Item # 622119
October 15, 1776
THE PENNSYLVANIA EVENING POST, Philadelphia, October 15, 1776
* Rare Revolutionary War title from America
* Great year to have (1776)
The front page is a continuation of a dialogue concerning Pennsylvania creating a new form of government.
Page 3 has a report from Harlem which includes: "Yesterday morning about 4000 of the enemy landed at Fagg's or Frog's point, about six miles above us. A detachment was immediately sent to oppose them; the enemy got possession of the point...had made no farther progress...the main body of Howe's army must be there..." & more.
Also a letter from "Camp Keowee, South Carolina", which has much on military events in that part of the country--great reading. Great to have a 1776 newspaper from Philadelphia.
The back page is filled with ads including five runaway reward ad.
Complete in four pages, measures about 8 by 10 in., very nice, clean condition.
