Documents relating to the beginning of the War of 1812...
Item # 686203
May 06, 1812
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, May 6, 1812
* James Madison Embargo Act
* Prelude to the War of 1812
The front page has nearly two columns taken up with a great letter headed: "Reflections on WAR!" being part of a sermon. This was from just two months before the War of 1812 would be formally declared.
Also on the front page is a notable: "Law of the United States" titled: "Authorizing the departure of ships & vessels from the ports and harbors of the United States, in certain cases." This obviously related to the coming War of 1812.
Four pages, nice condition.
