I have worked this morning on a tedious task; compiling a list of ALL the newspapers cited in the Stanton book. My prior list cited the major newspapers: the New York Herald, the Daily Ohio Statesman, etc. The new list, what you will see in the book, cites such newspapers as the Charleston (S.C.) Daily News and Flake’s Bulletin from Galveston, Texas. In total, more than one hundred twenty different newspapers are now in the bibliography.
This highlights the difference between 20th and 21st century research. In the 20th century, one reviewed newspapers on microfilm, and one could only review a few papers, in the major cities, or in places where one’s subject lived, such as Steubenville in the case of Stanton.
