Latest reports on the War of 1812...



Item # 626665

July 13, 1813

THE WAR, New York, July 13, 1813  The front page has: "Progress of the War In Virginia--Smithfield Attacked--British Monsters--Alarm--Alacrity of the Citizens--and Safety of the City". Inside contains: "The Chesapeake" "A Proclamation" signed: George Prevost (see); "Affair at Beaver Dams" "Capture of the British Tender Eagle" "North-Western Army" "Naval & Marine  Memoranda" "Retaliation" "Great Battle" and more.
Four pages, 9 3/4 by 12 1/4 in., never-trimmed margins, some foxing & minor damp stains, good condition.

This is a fascinating, short-lived newspaper, having begun in 1812 with the exclusive purpose of reporting on the War of 1812 (hence the title). When the war ended, so did this newspaper.
