Great account of the Battle of Camden, South Carolina...

Item # 650619
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, October, 1780  Near the back is a great, 3 1/2 page account of the historic Battle of Camden, where Cornwallis defeated the American General Gates. This account--with considerable detail--is a lengthy letter by Cornwallis himself, signed in type: Cornwallis. It is dated at Camden, Aug. 21, 1780, and begins: "It is with great pleasure that I communicated...an account of a complete victory on the 16th instant, by his majesty's troops under my command, over the rebel southern army commanded by General Gates...". Included is a list of the killed, wounded and missing.
Complete in 48 pages, 5 by 8 inches, very nice, clean condition. Lacking both of the plates called for.

Formatted very much like the Gentleman's Magazine but a much more scarce title. The title/contents page features a great engraving of the skyline of London.
