July 01, 1820

NILES WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, July 1, 1820  The entire front page is an editorial headed: "Independence" concerning the upcoming anniversary of the 4th of July.
Some great reading, with one paragraph beginning: "Nearly all the great actors in 1776 have made their exit to another & a better world, but some venerable men yet remain to bless our land with their presence...among these, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson stand pre-eminent..." with much more. Also inside: "Silver Mine in Ohio--Again" "Appointments by the President of the United States" which takes over a full page with a lengthy list of names & positions; "Fourth Census of the United States" "Paul Jones" being the famed John Paul Jones & much more.
Sixteen pages, 6 by 9 1/4 inches, 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."
