The special collections of Hamilton College has recently acquired this broadside printed upon the liquidation of the possessions of the Columbian Phalanx. Miller’s assessment that the community ceased operations later in the year of its founding appears to be correct based on the date of the auction of their possessions scheduled for January 7, 1846. Information about many of the smaller phalanxes is very scarce, and printed materials from them are even scarcer.
