Killing of Cherokees results in Resolve by the Virginia legislature...
Item # 659754
September 1, 1765
THE LONDON MAGAZINE, England, September, 1765 Perhaps the most interesting feature is the full title/contents page which has a very intricately engraved view of the skyline of London at the time, making this very decorative.
Near the back is a report with a Charleston dateline with news from North Carolina including: "...a party of Cherokee Indians...were on their way through the Western parts of Virginia kindly entertained by Col. Lewis...in a little time after they were set upon by a much superior number of lawless people who murdered five of the Cherokees..." with more on this, including a Resolve from the House of Burgesses: "That the killing the Cherokee Indians...is a flagrant violation of the treaties of peace..." with more (see).
The map called for on the title page is lacking.
Complete in 56 pages, 5 by 8 inches, excellent condition.
