March 08, 1814

THE WAR, New York, March 8, 1814  The entire front page is taken up with various "Documents" explaining the causes of the failure of the American on the Northern Frontier and which accompanied the report of the Secretary of War. Included are 6 letters signed in type: H. Dearborn.
Much reporting on the War of 1812 continues on page 2, and page 2 is mostly taken up with: "Rodgers' Cruise" being his letter to the Secretary of the Navy, signed: John Rodgers. Also within: Military Movements" "British Conspiracy" "Floating Batteries" "Army and Militia" and more.
Four pages, 9 1/4 by 11 1/2 inches, a bit of very light damp staining, 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.
