Item # 645891
September 18, 1847
THE FLORIDIAN, Tallahassee, Florida, Sept. 18, 1847 Nineteenth century newspapers from Florida are uncommon, particularly those from before the Civil War. Here is such an issue from the capital city of Florida, six years before the Civil War. Three-quarters of the ftpg. is taken up with reports on the Mexican War, headed: "Brilliant Victories!" - Important From Gen. Scott's Army - Battles of Coutreras and Charabusco" with more subheads (see). Included are terms of "The Armistice" which would end in September once peace talks fail. More on the Mexican War inside.
Four pages, slightly irregular at the blank spine, nice condition.
