NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., March 26, 1818
* United States Flag revision
The back page has reporting from "Congress" which includes discussion headed: "National Flag" which includes: "...on the bill to alter the flag of the United States..." with nice detail on the discussion on how to alter it with the addition of each new state to the Union. Interesting to read the discussion that would lead to the new law, and likely only found in this newspaper from the nation's capital which was the "mouthpiece" of the federal government.
Four pages, some foxing, good condition.
