Petersburg volunteers, who embarked in the service of their country in the War with Great Britain, on the 21st of October, 1812; … commanded by Captain Richard McRae … General Order — Head-quarters, Detroit, 17th October, 1813 … Robert Butler, Acting Assistant Adjutant General
Place Issued: Petersburg
Issuing Press: Uncertain
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 38 cm. x 26 cm. (broadside).
Only known copy is held in the broadside collection of the Virginia Historical Society; text offers a poetic tribute with a detailed list of the members of this military unit. Sheet lacks colophon; both of Petersburg's newspapers provided detailed coverage of the activities of the militia unit known as the "Petersburg Volunteers," despite the stark political differences between the two journals; hence, either office could have produced this title, and almost certainly did, so the partial attribution here.
