Original edition of the Richmond (VA) Enquirer dated December 15th 1814; Newspaper published by Thomas Ritchie. This edition contains public notices of slave auctions throughout Richmond and it’s neighboring town Petersburg, Virginia. In addition this Newspaper contains a long letter jointly from John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay in which great deal of the substance is devoted to the English bemoaning about the loss of the War of 1812 and the conflicts of the British Empire continuing to establish settlements within the United States and its territories. The paper also contains latest Indian conflicts which offer a raw picture of the tulmoutous times and the captivating fragility of a young nation.
Please take a moment to examine my other original early American Newspapers. There is not a history book that has been published that offers such a raw unedited picture of this nation as do these early newspapers.
