An extremely rare Massachusetts broadside printed towards the end of the French and Indian War, in which Gov. Francis Bernard calls for two thousand new recruits to serve under Sir Jeffrey Amherst, Field Marshal and Commander-in-Chief and Governor of North America. Amherst had previously been responsible for a series of victories against the French which led to the conquest of Canada. The proclamation, dated March 4, 1762, indicates that the soldiers will "serve only within the northern district of North America."
Extremely rare, not in Evans, Bristol, or NAIP. Ford lists only the Massachusetts Historical Society copy.
