Just out of my own curiosity, I’ve decided to use Chronicling America to read the front page of two newspapers -one north and one south- for the first of each of the months between 1859-1860. I am just curious to see what national/international issues they were discussing during the run up to War.
For no particular reason, other than I wanted the Southern Newspaper to be from my home state, I chose the Yazoo Democrat (Mississippi) and the New York Herald to compare.
It will probably take me a while as I’ll only do this when I have time. But as I alluded to, I’m only going to read the front page of each paper and limit the ones I do read to the editions published on the first of each month.
So, anyway, I’m gonna give it a try.
