War of 1812:

ADDRESS OF THE MINORITY IN CONGRESS TO THEIR CONSTITUENTS.

[np: 1812] 16pp, caption title [as issued]. Dbd, some loosening, moderately worn. Good to Good+. Federalists from New England, led by George Sullivan, assert they "could not consider the war into which the U.S. have, in secret, been precipitated as necessary, or required by any moral duty, or any political expediency." They document the muzzling of debate on the question of the Declaration of War, the war's disastrous effect on commerce, the unreasonable bias of the Madison Administration toward France; and they mourn the loss of American security. Quite scarce. Not in AI, Sabin [which records an 1812 response to this Address], Eberstadt, Decker or, evidently, NUC.
