NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Jan. 14, 1815 Much of the issue is taken up with the "Hartford Convention" which concerned grievances with the on-going War of 1812. Near the back is: "Events of the War" which has over 2 pages on the latest reports from New Orleans, and includes: "General Orders, to the Citizens of New Orleans" signed in type: Thos. L. Butler.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice 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, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
