The Presidential election...
General LaFayette... American Indians: Choctaw, Osage, Creeks...
Item # 647185
December 4, 1824
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, December 4, 1824 Among the articles are: "Presidential Election" which has a chart showing states and votes for each (see photos), plus another report of the Alabama votes for President by county. Also, inside includes: "LaFayette & the Sons of the Forest" being an emotional heart-deep meeting of Choctaw Indian chiefs and General LaFayette, which is ironically followed by: "Trial of the Osages", which describes in detail the accidental but unprovoked killing of white men by a handful of Osage warriors, and the resulting trial. Additional articles include: "To the Cotton Planters of the U.S.", "Creek Indians" which takes over a full page, and much more.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice 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."
