Item # 626544
May 25, 1813
THE WAR, New York, May 25, 1813
* Siege of Fort Meigs - Ohio
* William Henry Harrison
* Toronto, Canada captured
The entire front page is taken up with: "Rules and Regulations for the Army of the United States", providing some interesting reading (see for portions).
Items inside include: "Exchange of Prisoners" "Further Particulars of the Capture of York" (present-day Toronto); "Good News From the North-Western Army--The Enemy Repulsed" which is a lengthy letter on the Battle of the Miami, or the siege of Fort Meigs, signed in type: Wm. Henry Harrison; "From Lake Ontario" "Our Military Prospects" and even 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.
