Exploring the Yellowstone... Westward expansion...



Item # 629037

January 15, 1820

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, January 15, 1820  Certainly the best article in this issue is the lengthy report headed: "Expedition to the Yellow Stone" which has some great detail on this expedition, which is a very early report. The text takes over 3 pages and includes a half pg. chart headed: "Statement Showing the Movement of the Troops composing the Missouri & Mississippi Expedition in the course of the year 1819" (see photos for portions).
Among other reports in this issue are: "The Spanish Treaty," "Domestic Industry," and various reports from Congress including a note signed in type: James Monroe.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, in very good condition.

This newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century. As noted in Wikipedia: "Niles edited and published the Weekly Register until 1836, making it into one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States and himself into one of the most influential journalists of his day. Devoted primarily to politics, Niles' Weekly Register is considered an important source for the history of the period."
