The Mormons... LaFayette...



Item # 689423

July 26, 1834

NILES' WEEKLY REGISTER, Baltimore, July 26, 1834   The front page has an item concerning the memory of LaFayette, who recently died, plus there are two letters on an inside page each signed by: George LaFayette, concerning the death of the general. 
One Mormon report includes: "The report of a battle with the Mormons in Jackson county Missouri, was not true...well armed, advanced, assured by their prophet, Smith, that he would raise all that should be killed in fighting the battles of the Lord!..." with more. A second report takes over half a page, headed: "Mormons In Missouri".
Sixteen pages, 6 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."

Item from Catalog 343 (released for June, 2024)
