America’s Historical Newspapers

America's Historical Newspapers graphic

The University of Vermont Libraries recently acquired a subscription to America’s Historical Newspapers, a powerful database that provides access to American newspapers dating from 1690-1922. The resource makes hundreds of newspapers from around the nation available as searchable, online documents that provide contemporaneous accounts of events such as the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, westward expansion, the abolition of slavery, and the labor movement.

America’s Historical Newspapers lets you search newspapers by region, state, and title as well as by article type. All articles are avilable in PDF format and can be zoomed in or viewed in the context of the whole page.
