Welcome!


You may want to start with our hints and suggestions for using the collection. Users unfamiliar with the partisan newspaper press in the late antebellum period may want to read a short introduction to the partisan press which explains the circumstances under which these documents were first created. More advanced users may wish to look at our brief discussion of concepts of political vocabulary and political rhetoric. We also have background information about the project, including document selection criteria, transcription methods, a list of the newspapers currently included and the collection's TEI/XML source file.
