Wealth of reporting on the War of 1812...
Item # 626801
April 5, 1812
THE WAR, New York, April 5, 1814
* Printed exclusively to report on the War of 1812
The entire front page is taken up with the continued report on explaining the causes of the failure of the U.S. military on the northern frontier, including letters signed by General Wade Hampton and John Armstrong. This text carries over to take most of pg. 2 as well.
Other items within: "Impressment" which hs a nice letter signed by: Stephen Decatur to the Sec. of the Navy; "The Navy" "Indian Affairs" "Brilliant Achievement" "Highly Important" 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.
