Item # 697913

September 04, 1812

THE YANKEE, Boston, Sept. 4, 1812  

* USS Constitution vs. HMS Guerriere
* War of 1812 - U.S. Navy victory
* Siege of Detroit - surrender
* Battle of Fort Detroit
* General William Hull


Inside has nice content on the War of 1812, most notably: "Surrender of Gen. Hull's Army to The British" which takes most of a column with the various reports. This was the surrender of Detroit. Hull would be paroled by the British the next year, and then court-martialed by the Americans for the surrender of Fort Detroit.
Also inside is another major report: "Naval Intelligence - Brilliant Victory!" which is the U.S.S. Constitution over the Guerriere. This notable victory takes most of a column to detail in the several reports.
Four pages, nice condition.
