The Wasp captures the Frolic...



Item # 642245

December 5, 1812

THE WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Dec. 5, 1812  This newspaper actually has much content concerning the War of 1812, but one of the more historic reports is that found on an inside page concerning the naval battle of the Wasp and Frolic. There are actually two such reports in this issue, both shown in the photos.
Other War of 1812 reports are found under the heading: "Events Of The War" which takes several pages. A few of the reports are shown in the photos. 
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, even toning, very good condition.

This small size 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."
