About this Item

J. R. Poinsett concludes, "From these documents it appears that the defences on the Atlantic seaboard and Gulf of Mexico are altogether infefficient?the works being unfinished, unarmed, and without garrisons, not even men enough to preserve them from dilapidation, or to protect them from plunder; and that every naval station and principal seaport on the whole maritime frontier of the United States is exposed to be attacked and destroyed by a very inferior force." Government document: 25th Congress, 2d Session. Doc. No. 199. Ho. of Reps. War Dept. 8vo. 17 pp. Removed from a nonce volume. First and last pages foxed. First page with number inked in upper right corner by an early hand. Bookseller Inventory # 11916
