Item # 626753
March 15, 1814
THE WAR, New York, March 15, 1814
* War of 1812 original reading
* John Armstrong Jr. & Winfield Scott
Most of the front page is taken up with: "Documents...Correspondence between the Secretary of War & Brig. General Boyd" all datelined Fort George & includes letters signed by John Armstrong and W. Scott.
Similar content carries over to pg. 2 with 4 letters signed by John Armstrong. Also: "British Veracity" "Summary" and "Marine Memoranda" among other items.
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.
