Original November 3, 1806 Boston Gazette Newspaper
Death of Henry Knox
Superb rare paper and report! Hometown paper!
newspapers are one of
the most fascinating collectibles in existence, and they are as close as
we can ever get to a time machine! The most exciting part of newspaper
collecting is that they were printed during the infancy of the United
States, and that they capture many famous events.
All of the
events in U.S. history are reported in original newspapers, such as the
Stamp Act, 1770 Boston Massacre, 1773 Boston Tea Party, the
Revolutionary War; 1775 battle of Lexington and Concord, Bunker Hill,
1776 Trenton, 1776 Declaration of Independence, 1781 Yorktown; as well
as the 1787 Constitution, and the 1789 Bill of Rights. One can read
about George Washington crossing the Delaware, or being elected the
first president of the U.S. in a newspaper printed when it happened, and
read by the people alive at the time it happened!
The Civil War,
1865, and Abraham Lincoln were greatly covered by American newspapers,
as well as outlaws like Billy the Kid, Jesse James, and Geronimo!
Events from WWII, such as Pearl Harbor and the Death of Hitler, were
reported in newspapers across America with big splashy headlines.
institutions such as Historical Societies, saved and preserved these
papers so that they could survive to this day. They survive easily
because they are made of a rag linen material which is extremely strong
and durable. They will survive and remain strong and pliable for many
more centuries to come.
