Perhaps the best newspaper to be had for Harrison's inauguration...



Item # 652882

March 5, 1841

DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., March 5, 1841  Perhaps the best newspaper to be had on the inauguration of William Henry Harrison as the nation's ninth President, this being the premier newspaper from the nation's capital. 
Most of page 2 is taken up with: "THE INAUGURAL ADDRESS of Gen. William Henry Harrison, March 4, 1841, On entering Upon the Duties of the office of President of the United States".
Fully half of page 3 is taken up with excellent coverage of the inaugural proceedings & ceremonies. Among the column heads: "THE INAUGURATION" "The Procession" "The President Elect" "Approaching The Capitol" "At The Capitol" "At the President's House" "The Close of the Day" "In The Evening" and "The End of the Day". This is the most details coverage of the ceremonies we have seen, but not surprising being a Washington newspaper.
Complete in four pages, excellent condition.
