New York: William H. Graham, 1847. 8vo, printed brown wrappers, in recent red cloth folding case. 28 pp. Pervasive light foxing, but very good. First Edition. Inscribed on upper front wrapper: "From the author with his respects to Mr. Steinbergen of Fairfield Court." In his recently-published memoirs McKenney had discussed the invasion of Washington, D. C., by British troops during the War of 1812, a fiasco which had led to the forced resignation of the Secretary of War, General John Armstrong. The general's son had taken umbrage at McKenney's rather sympathetic portrayal of the general and had published an intemperate pamphlet. In this rejoinder McKenney produces numerous detailed eyewitness accounts to substantiate his version of the affair. Sabin 43405. (Item Id: 5871)
