August 04, 1800
THE CONNECTICUT COURANT, Hartford, Aug. 4, 1800
* USS Constellation vs La Vengeance
* United States vs. French Navy frigates
Page 2 has a nice report on the naval battle between the USS Constellation and the French frigate La Vengeance, a single-ship action during the Quasi-War (see the web for details). It was a victory for the U.S. Navy however the report here implies it was a victory for the French (see).
Page 2 also has a nice article concerning the capture of a slave ship: "...with 80 prime slaves on board...consist principally of boys and girls in good health, and were intended for sale at the Havanna..." with more.
Four pages, bit of foxing, good condition.
