Great content on the "Pennsylvania Line Mutiny"...
Item # 650793
February 1, 1781
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, February, 1781 The last 3 pages have nice reports & correspondences on what is known as the Pennsylvania Line Mutiny. This was a mutiny of continental army soldiers who demanded higher pay and better housing conditions. It ended with a negotiated settlement on January 8, 1781. The mutiny was the most successful and important insurrection of continental army soldiers during the Revolutionary War.
Complete in 56 pages, 5 by 8 inches, nearly close-trimmed at the right margin of the front leaf only. One of the two plates called for is present being: "The Lady of Loretto" (see).
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.
