Newspapers from the 1500
 

Newspapers from the 1500's though 1700's

Looking for authentic resources and/or collectibles pertaining to George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams... or from the Colonial, Revolutionary War, or post-war eras?  If so, historic newspapers are a great choice!

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.
