Who is to pay for the Mormon War?



Item # 648734

January 5, 1839

NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Baltimore, Jan. 5, 1839  Page 2 has a report from the Missouri legislature which includes "...governor has made a statement of the expenses of the Mormon war...and suggests that the United States are liable for it. The governor's position is that the Mormon movement was an insurrection & that the national government is bound to suppress insurrections...." with more (see).
The balance of the issue is mostly taken up with congressional proceedings.
Sixteen pages 8 1/2 by 12 inches, nice condition.

This newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century.
