STATE OF MAINE NEWS ARTICLES


1828:

We are happy to learn says the Portland Argus, that there is no truth in the rumor which was copied into this paper some time ago, that British officers from Frederickton were laying out ground for a military entrenchment on an eminence upon the provincial side of the line, near the spot selected for erecting barracks for the United States troops. We are also informed that there are no British troops above Frederickton.
