Some naval-themed reports...
Item # 626408
January 26, 1813
THE WAR, New York, Jan. 26, 1813 Much of the front page is taken up with naval concerns with the first column being the conclusion of a: "Naval Report" being a chart with various particulars of the different ships. Also a report headed: "United States frigate Constitution" (see) which carries over to take all of pg. 2 & some of pg. 3.
Other articles include: "Admiral Warren's Fleet" "Battle With the Indians" "General Tecumseh" "Tribute of Respect" and more.
Four pages, 9 3/4 by 12 1/4 in., never-trimmed margins, very nice, clean condition.
This is a fascinating, short-lived newspaper, having begun in 1812 with the exclusive purpose of reporting on the War of 1812 (hence the title). When the war ended, so did this newspaper.
