Biographical/Historical Note

During The Civil War, newspapers were some of the only reliable sources of information on what was happening in the war. Newspapers like the True Democrat would briefly describe the events and latest news from battlefields around the country. It would also tell which regiments were camped nearby the place of publication, publish proclamations, decrees, and ways the citizens could contribute to the war effort.
