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 landmark events in U. 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. In a newspaper printed when it happened, and read by the people alive at the time it happened! The Civil War, 1861 to 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. Libraries, and 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.
