NILES' NATIONAL REGISTER, Baltimore, Oct. 11, 1845  

* Early Mormons - Mormonism
* Mormon Illinois War


The back page has a rather brief report concerning: "The Mormon War" noting: "...promises to terminate in an abandonment of their settlements in Illinois, by the Mormons. The conditions or treaty for their improvements and property necessary to be left is now a matter of discussion. The military ordered out by Gov. Ford have quietly taken control of country in dispute between the Mormon and anti-Mormon combatants."
Sixteen pages, 8 1/2 by 12 inches, great 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."
