Trial of Admiral Keppel...

Item # 652592

January 19, 1779

THE MIDDLESEX JOURNAL & EVENING POST, London, Jan. 19, 1779  The entire front page & a bit of pg. 2 are taken up with verbatim: "Proceedings of the Court Martial on the Trial of Admiral Keppel". As Wikipedia notes: 'During the American Revolutionary War Keppel came into a notorious dispute with Sir Hugh Palliser over Palliser's conduct as his second-in-command at the inconclusive Battle of Ushant in July 1778; the dispute led to Keppel being court-martialed, although he was subsequently acquitted. During the final years of the American Revolutionary War Keppel served as First Lord of the Admiralty.'
Four pages, nice condition.
