War is declared, beginning the War of 1812...



Item # 661756

June 20, 1812

THE WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, June 20, 1812  An inside page has a lengthy: "Declaration of War" which takes over 1 1/2 columns and is signed in type by the President: James Madison. This is followed by related reporting from the "Committee on foreign relations..." which takes over 2 pages. And on the back page is the formal Act of Congress declaring war against England, headed: "AN ACT Declaring War between the United Kingdom of Great Britain...and the United States of America & their territories", signed in type by the President: James Madison.
Great to have this historic reporting in a newspaper published so close to Washington, D.C., and in a city which would figure prominently in the War of 1812.
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, spotted foxing, very good 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."
