Place Issued: Alexandria
Issuing Press: Thomas & Westcott
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; (broadside).
Text contains the lyrics to a song of thirteen stanzas, printed in two columns. Subject is the beating of Vermont Republican Matthew Lyon (1749-1825) by Connecticut Federalist Roger Griswold (1762-1812) on floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on February 15, 1798; the writer contrasts the Federalists' advocacy for social order with this disordered event. Sheet lacks printer credit; Evans attributed this title to the press of Thomas & Westcott, then the Republican printers in Alexandria, as opposed to the Federalist press of Price & Gird; that assignment is included in this Index in the absence of other evidence.
