On Fremont's court martial trial for mutiny & insubordination...
Item # 658835
November 29, 1847
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Nov. 29, 1847 The front page has a full column taken up with the detailed report of the: "Army Court Martial" trial of Col. John Fremont, which carries over to page 2 as well.
Fremont was convicted in court-martial for mutiny and insubordination over a conflict of who was the rightful military governor of California. After his sentence was commuted and he was reinstated by President Polk, Fremont resigned from the Army.
Terrific to have this report in this newspaper from the seat of the federal government.
Four pages, minor loss of some blank margin, very nice condition.
