The Little Belt Affair: War of 1812 about to begin...



Item # 649449

September 21, 1811

THE WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Sept. 21, 1811  The first 6 pages are taken up with a great & very detailed account of the Little Belt Affair, a naval battle between the U.S. ship President & the British ship Little Belt, an event which was a catalyst for the War of 1812. Headed: "President and Little Belt" it includes a letter from Commodore Rodgers to the Secretary of the Navy.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 3/4 inches, a printing crease at the beginning of the article causes no loss, very nice condition.

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."
