Notice from King George to Creeks and Other Indian Nations, 1814 (facsimile)

Date
1814
Description
A reproduction of the earliest known West Florida imprint. Original was printed aboard the H.M.S. ''Tonnant'' in Dec. 1814. A few months before, this British man-of-war had besieged Washington D.C. and along with other British forces in Chesapeake area, burned a number of buildings in the new nation's capital. Now the Tonnant's mission was to sail to the Gulf Coast with the mission to attract Indian allies to the British cause and to confront the U.S. Army under Andrew Jackson. Hence this broadside was printed aboard the Tonnant to be distributed to the Indian Chiefs.
