Printed exclusively to report the War of 1812...



Item # 671290

March 22, 1814

THE WAR, New York, March 22, 1814  The front page has various "Documents" including item signed in type by John Armstrong and William. H. Harrison, all relating to the war. They carry over to take most of pg. 2 as well.
Other content within includes four Acts of Congress, each signed in type by the President: James Madison. Also: "Ogdensburgh" "Summary" "From Canada", a letter from the captain of the Constellation, "President & Plantagenet" and other items.
Four pages, 9 3/4 by 12 1/4 in., never-trimmed margins, very nice, clean condition.

This is a fascinating, short-lived newspaper, having begun in 1812 with the exclusive purpose of reporting on the War of 1812 (hence the title). When the war ended, so did this newspaper.
