Historic newspapers, both past and present, are a mirror of our civilization's rich history. They maintain an invaluable record of the people and events that shaped our nation and the world. The key battles of the American Revolution and the Civil War, fierce pirates like Blackbeard, the travels of Lewis and Clark, speeches of Henry Clay and Frederick Douglass, gunfights of the Wild West and even the sinking of the Titanic are all captured in the pages of American and European newspapers.
A Living Chronicle
In addition, newspapers provide an authentic "feel" for the past in a way no history textbook or novel can truly match. Besides historical content, the earlier papers contained fascinating advertisements, notices of runaway slaves, announcements of "cure-alls" for seemingly every malady, and editorials on the hottest issues of the day. As newspapers evolved, innovations such as banner headlines, comic strips, sports reporting and even advice to the lovelorn were added. The newspaper is truly a "living" chronicle of daily life of the past.
