NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, Nov. 19, 1831
* Nat Turner, leader of the slave insurrection, is hanged
Within this issue is a brief & rather inconspicuous item reading: "The famous Nat Turner was taken in Southampton county on the 30th ult. His place if concealment was in a cave, not many miles from the theatre of his bloody exploits. He has been tried, found guilty and hung, and his body given to the surgeons."
Among other reports in this issue are: "United States Whale Fishery" "The Imprisoned Missionaries" "Vermont" "Polish Proclamation"
Sixteen pages, 6 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(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."
