Here's an interesting historical discovery....

Washington [D.C.] Mayor James H. Blake: “Citizens Of Washington. . . . every man exempt from military duty, who is able to carry a musket . . . Such as have no arms and ammunition, will be furnished”, Aug. 20, 1814

   And following is a quote excerpted from the title page of the publication the above was found in:
   The common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.--Washington.
