Commentary on the War of 1812, most of the text having been written while the war was in progress. Includes, besides the biographical sketches noted in the title, material on the Creek Indians and their relations with the government. This book is particularly interesting in connection with Jackson's 1814 campaign against the Creeks. William C.C. Claiborne, brother of the author and at one time governor of Louisiana, receives the most biographical attention. Not in Sabin. Scarce. HOWES C421, "aa." DE RENNE, p.365. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 47622.
