Concerning the Choctaw Indian Treaty...
Item # 647579
April 09, 1831
NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, April 9, 1831 The report headed: "Choctaw Treaty" is not the text of it but information concerning it including 3 letters each signed in type: Andrew Jackson. This report takes 1 1/2 pages. Also "Chesapeake & Ohio Canal" much text on: "Congressional Reports".
Complete in 24 pages, 6 1/4 by 9 3/4 inches, very nice condition.
This newspaper began in 1811 and was a prime source for national political news of the first half of the 19th century. As noted in Wikipedia it: "...(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."
