Webster spoke against extending enlistments during the War of 1812, reiterating a common Federalist charge that the enlarged army was simply a means for the Madison administration to wage an offensive war against Canada, rather than a defensive one against Great Britain. The firm of Snowden & Simms then published the Federalist-oriented Alexandria Gazette Shaw & Shoemaker inadvertently recorded this title twice (nos. 31618 & 36522); the Early American Imprints Series filmed this item only under the lower entry number.
