Newspapers from the 1800's

Looking for authentic resources and/or collectibles pertaining to Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Sitting Bull... or from the Civil War, War of 1812, Wild West eras... or regarding Emancipation, the Gold Rush, and/or Westward Expansion?  If so, historic newspapers are a great choice!  The mid-19th Century also saw an explosion of the inclusion of illustrations within newspapers.  The works of Thomas Nast, Winslow Homer, Fredrick Remington, W. A. Rogers, and A. B. Frost helped fuel an era of printing which has led to an assortment of highly collectible illustrated newspapers.

Additionally, while the newspapers of today would generally be considered secondary source material, this was not the case during the 17th through 19th centuries. Previous to the 20th century and the technologies of radio, television, and certainly the internet, much public discourse occurred directly within newspapers. 

It was not uncommon for newspapers to be created specifically to espouse the platforms and views of an individual or political party--often viewed by the public for the first time. To provide context for their readership it was common to publish responses by their contemporaries, including those with opposing views. This created a nice blend of both primary and secondary reporting, making newspapers the chosen arena for debate & providing unmatched context for determining how leaders' views of the day were interpreted.

Not only were newspapers the "king of media", they were the only media for much of American history!

 It is with this in mind that we invite you to collect history...

 ...through original and historic newspapers.
