Very extensive reporting on the Mexican War...
Item # 647570
November 13, 1847
THE DAILY UNION, Washington, Nov. 13, 1847 Two-thirds of the front page are taken up with lengthy & detailed: "Official Dispatches" "Battles of Conatreras and Churubusco" which includes two lengthy letters signed in type by: Winfield Scott.
Coverage of the Mexican War continues to take off of page 2, and nearly half of page 3 with reports from Generals Pillow, Twiggs, Worth, Quitman, and Smith among others. I'm not sure we've seen such extensive Mexican War reporting in one issue before.
Four pages, various archival mends near margins, some minor margin tears.
