About This Item

Boston: Sold wholesale and retail by L. Deming, No. 62, Hanover Street, 2d door from Friend Street, 1830. Broadside poem, printed in three columns separated by rules. 8-1/4" x 9-3/4". Old folds with slight effect on text. Some spotting. About Good+. The poem was printed in several locations at several times in the early 19th century. All agree that Ballou wrote this celebration of America's successful defiance of British might, in the Revolution and the War of 1812. "Now in ourselves we can confide,/ Abroad we are respected;/ We've checked the rage of British pride,/ Their haughtiness corrected." "Reviews the various battles and the exploits of the Revolutionary Generals, and the later campaigns and valiant services of those who participated in the War of 1812; all in the most doggy doggerel" [Eberstadt]. OCLC 10409759 [1- U TX] as of February 2019 [this imprint]. 113 Eberstadt 442 [variant]. OCLC 31962947 [2- Harvard, Brown] [slightly different imprint].
