- WAR DECLARED!!
A printed paper broadside with the headline "WAR DECLARED!!" announcing the United State's declaration of war against Great Britain on June 18, 1812. The broadside is dated June 22, 1812, with a "MIRROR-OFFICE" attribution. This is assumed to be the Connecticut Mirror, a Hartford, Connecticut, newspaper. It lists the number of Congressional votes for and against the war and announces the authorization of a naval force and Letters of Marque and Reprisal.
