Failures in the northern frontier... Naval reports...

Item # 695220

March 29, 1814

THE WAR, New York, March 29, 1814  The entire front page is taken up with a continuation of "Documents" explaining the causes of the failure of the American military on the northern frontier. Included are documents signed by: Isaac Shelby, W. Hampton, & John Armstrong. These reports carry over to page 2.
Other reports within include: "Grand Naval Challenge" which takes nearly a full page and include letters signed: S. Decatur and Thos. M. Hardy. Also "Rattlesnake and Enterprize" which is a very detailed account it their 8-week cruise; "Now For the Tug of War!" "From Bermuda" "General Court-Martial" and more.
Four pages, 9 1/4 by 11 1/2 inches, very nice condition.
This is a fascinating, short-lived newspaper, having begun in 1812 for the exclusive purpose of reporting on the War of 1812 (hence the title) with no advertisements. When the war ended, so did this newspaper.
