Nice on the Battle of Tippecanoe...
Item # 638926
December 2, 1811
UNITED STATES' GAZETTE FOR THE COUNTRY, Philadelphia, Dec. 2, 1811 Page 2 contains a nice account of the historic Battle of Tippecanoe, headed: "INDIAN BATTLE!' with various details (see). Page 3 has an editorial headed: "A Most Distressing Disaster" beginning: "The rumour received yesterday by the way of Pittsburgh of the defeat of our troops by the Indians under the Prophet, unfortunately turns out to be too true. Our little army has been dreadfully defeated..." with more. Actually this editorial is quite inaccurate (see hyperlink).
Four pages plus the single sheet Supplement, very nice condition.
