THE WAR, New York, Feb. 22, 1814 Most of the front page is taken up with: "Fifth Victory Over the Creeks" as well as: "Sixth Victory Over the Creeks". Notable content inside includes: "Failure of Our Arms on the Northern Frontier" which is prefaced with a "Message" signed in type: James Madison and which includes documents signed by H. Dearborn and John Armstrong. Also within "Fortunate Escape" "Desperate Action" which is a report of a naval encounter datelined Wilmington, N.C.
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.
