Item # 642498
March 26, 1836
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, March 26, 1836 Within are several articles concerning the Texas war for independence. "Letter from the War Department" is concerning Indian tribes and is quite lengthy & detailed. A report headed: "News From Texas" mentions: "...volunteers are returning from Texas...they have found any thing else there than food for a frolic & report very discouragingly of the inhabitants of the country. In the camp at San Antonio the troops had been entirely out of bread-stuff some days before our informant left..." and more.
Another report mentions: "...Col. Bowie had gone amongst the Camanche Indians to have a talk & he will endeavor to keep them quiet." and "On the 4th of March the Texian declaration of independence was to be made at San Felippe & the provisional government under the new order of things instituted."
Much content in the Seminole War as well, and reporting on events in Texas just a few days before the historic battle of the Alamo near San Antonio.
