1810.099: Petition asking Incorporation of Martinsburg as a City.

Published: 1810

Full Title: To the honourable ... General Assembly ... inhabitants of the town of Martinsburgh ... pray, that the said town shall be encorporated ...

Author: Inhabitants of Martinsburg.

Place Issued: Martinsburg

Issuing Press: John Alburtis

Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 36 cm. x 21 cm. (broadside).


Effort failed in this session, Martinsburg was not incorporated as a city until 1868, and then by an act of the legislature of the new state of West Virginia. Sheet lacks colophon; clearly a petition from Martinsburg where the only press was then conducted by John Alburtis; so the attribution here.
