Item # 626760

July 19, 1814

THE WAR, New York, July 19, 1814  The ftpg. has articles headed: "New Requisition" "Burning of the Shipping at Wareham" and "Army Court Martial". Articles on pgs. 2, 3 & 4 are headed: "Tribute to Merit" "Fort Erie Captured" "Battle of Chippewa" "From Chesapeake Bay" "Madison's Island" which is a "Declaration" of Capt. David Porter, signed by him in type (see); also: "Naval Forces on Lake Ontario" "Marine Memoranda" "Porter's Official Letter" and "Loss of the U.S. Schooner Alligator". This issue is simply filled with War of 1812 news!
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.
