Exploring Confederate Newspapers

     One of the challenges I have run into over my years of researching the Civil War is the common one of the stark imbalance between the number of Federal and Confederate sources available to the researcher. It is not unusual to find three Union sources to each Confederate source which renders the challenge of providing an even-handed and impartial history at times a daunting one. 

    One avenue to address that imbalance, albeit a very time-consuming one, lies in perusing the pages of the hundreds of newspapers printed throughout the Confederacy during the war years. The newspapers often published correspondence direct from the soldiers in the army giving startling accounts of the marches, campaigns, and battles of the war. The knock on this approach was the fact that existing issues were available either in their original paper format or on microfilm and were not widely available outside of their home state of origin. So to access them, you either had to travel or pay someone locally to peruse on your behalf. However, over the past ten years the availability of these newspapers in a digital format has vastly improved due to the efforts of websites like Chronicling America, Google newspapers, and Newspapers.com.

          I recently completed a survey of what newspapers were available from each of these three websites for the 11 states of the old Confederacy and was surprised to find that 327 different titles were available online totaling thousands of issues! I was also surprised to find such a diversity of content with newspapers printed in German, French, as well as English. With some of the titles, only a single edition exists while with others the entire period of the war is covered. Some of the newspapers had a singularly local focus, while others were more properly termed as regional papers and were widely read throughout the Confederacy. Many of these newspapers featured soldiers correspondence on a regular basis. 

By September 1863, the Daily Huntsville Confederate was being published in Marietta, Georgia. 

To facilitate utilizing this great and relatively untapped source of original material, I’ve constructed the following list organized by state, city of publication, title, years printed, and which website has digital editions online. A quick breakdown of the number of titles per state shows that North Carolina has the most titles available at 76 with Alabama following with 59. My apologies for any issues with the odd formatting of the list-if you scroll to the right, you will see the dates available and source. 

Alabama: 59

Arkansas: 15

Florida: 1

Georgia: 5

Louisiana: 38

Mississippi: 28

North Carolina: 76

South Carolina: 29

  1. Impressive work. I rely on many of these papers to fill in the gaps, just as you describe. The next, even more daunting task, is to start tracking which papers included postwar reminiscences as an ongoing feature, usually on Sundays - the Atlanta Constitution, for one. There is yet more gold out there.
