Description: The Accessible Archives databases contain the full text of important American newspapers from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. They include the Pennsylvania Gazette from 1728 to 1800, which was the leading English-language newspaper of the continent. This newspaper contains over 40 million words and provides a first hand view of colonial America, the American Revolution, and the New Republic, and it offers important social, political and cultural perspectives of the period. Thousands of articles, editorials, letters, news items, and advertisements cover the entire hemisphere and give a detailed glimpse of issues and lifestyles of the times.

The Civil War segment has the full text of major articles gleaned from over 2,500 issues of The New York Herald, The Charleston Mercury and The Richmond Enquirer, published between November 1, 1860 and April 15, 1865. Coverage begins with the events preceding the outbreak of war at Fort Sumter, continues through the surrender at Appomattox, and concludes with the assassination and funeral of Abraham Lincoln. Included are descriptive news articles, eye-witness accounts and official reports of battles and events, editorials, advertisements and biographies. A great effort has been made also to include articles that describe military concerns of the day as well as such topics as travel, arts and leisure, geographical descriptions, sports and sporting, and social events. Since the major events are reported in detail by both Union and Confederate papers, their opposing perspectives are readily available for comparative evaluation.

The third major segment of the database contains twelve million words from several of the major African-American newspapers of the nineteenth century. Together they provide a wealth of information about the cultural life and history and provide first-hand reports of the major events and issues of the day. This segment also contains large numbers of early biographies, vital statistics, essays and editorials, poetry and prose, and advertisements that embody the African-American experience.

The fourth segment is Godey's Lady's Book from 1830 to 1855. Intended to entertain, inform, and educate the women of America, it contained fashion descriptions and plates, biographical sketches, articles about mineralogy, handcrafts, female costume, the dance, equestrienne procedures, health and hygiene, recipes and remedies, and extensive book reviews and works by 19th century authors such as Harriet Beecher Stowe, Edgar Allen Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

Baltimore Afro-American Historical Newspaper

Description: Founded by former slave John Henry Murphy, Sr when he merged three church publications, The Baltimore Afro-American became one of the most widely circulated African-American newspapers on the Atlantic Coast. In addition to featuring the first black female reporter (Murphy’s daughter) and female sportswriters, the paper’s contributors have included writer Langston Hughes, intellectual J Saunders Redding, artist Romare Bearden, and sports editor Sam Lacy, whose column influenced the desegregation of professional sports. Through the decades, the newspaper fought for equal employment rights, urged African-American participation in politics, and advocated state-funded higher education for blacks. In the 1930s, The Afro-American launched 'The Clean Block' campaign, which is still in existence today, to clean up inner-city neighborhoods and fight crime. It stationed correspondents in Europe and the Pacific during World War II, providing first-hand reports to readers. In the 1950s, working with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the newspaper’s efforts contributed to the outlawing of public school segregation.

Civil War: Newspaper, Soldiers’, and Generals’ Perspectives

Search this Resource

Description: This database consists of articles reporting on the Civil War from important newspapers as well as first-person accounts of the soldiers and officers who fought in the conflict. It consists of over 2500 issues of the New York Herald, Charleston Mercury and Richmond Enquirer, plus newspapers from the Midwest that present the war from different political perspectives. Included are descriptive news articles, eye-witness accounts and official reports of battles and events, editorials, advertisements and biographies. A great effort has been made also to include articles that describe topics beyond the military concerns of the day, such as travel, arts and leisure, geographical descriptions, sports and sporting, and social events.

The database also includes books written after the war by both generals and ordinary soldiers. The latter provide an in-depth look at the day-to-day actions of the troops themselves, primarily in the form of regimental histories. Usually written by an individual, but sometimes compiled by a committee, these books were published after the war to document what actually happened. While some battle and war narratives are included, the focus was primarily on the individual. The accounts of the generals allow a look into the way the battles were fought. Here the emphasis is on strategies and tactics as planned an executed by the commanding officers, with a longer-term view as opposed to daily concerns. As memoirs, many of the books go beyond the war to describe an officer's entire career. The contents also include a large variety of letters and other correspondence. While the emphasis is on the Union, a number of Confederate generals' narratives are included

Librarians from the State Library of North Carolina indexed topics and personal names from articles and selected obituaries that appeared in the Raleigh News & Observer from 1926 to 1992 (some years are currently missing from the index, namely 1978-1981). The index, until 1977, was typed onto catalog cards. The cards are now scanned and mechanically transcribed. The records created after 1977 were typed directly into a database, so no actual catalog cards were created. (From publisher's website)

Pittsburgh Courier Historical Newspaper

Search this Resource

Description: Urging African-Americans to actively participate in shaping their political destinies—and often leading the charge—the Pittsburgh Courier was once the most widely circulated black newspaper in the U.S. in the early 20th century. The newspaper campaigned for increasing the number of black physicians and opening a hospital to serve the black community in Pittsburgh, where white facilities often refused to provide services. In the 1930s, the newspaper led a nationwide protest against the Amos ‘n’ Andy radio show and its advertisers because of the media’s offensive portrayal of African-Americans. The publication’s 'Double V' campaign during World War II demanded equal rights at home for black soldiers risking their lives overseas.
