War Of 1812 Newspaper The Weekly Register Baltimore 18 Sept 1813 Original For Sale
This sale is for a very rare issue of THE WEEKLY REGISTER of Baltimore, Maryland for September 18, 1813. Published by H. Niles (and later to carry his name on the masthead) this is a unique primary source view of the War of 1812 as seen by an American observer. Articles include "Barbarities of the Enemy" and full discussions on the issue of impressing American seamen into the British Navy on the high seas. As an ardent commercial mercantilist, Niles reports on prices for various commodities in various ports along the coast in spite of the active war being waged and the presence of the British fleet.
