Much news from the War of 1812...



Item # 671468

January 09, 1813

THE WAR, New York, Jan. 9, 1813  The front page begins with an interesting editorial: "The War", and also has: "Sickness Of The Army" signed by: James Mann, Hospital Surgeon, U.S. Army. Items inside include: "Prospect of Peace" "Battle with the Indians" "The Sailor's Dinner" "Summary" "Loss of the U.S. brig Vixen of 2 Guns & the British Frigate Southampton" "Commodore Rodger's Second Cruise" "Military Maxims" and more.
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.
