Fifty years ago this week my older sister and I came in from carving Matchbox-car-sized roads through the previously well-manicured turf of our backyard to find our mother staring at the semi-snowy, partially visible screen of our black and white television with tears streaming down her face. Not being prone to such outward displays of emotion, her anguish screamed to us that something tragic had happened. This moment was emblazoned in our minds for life... and was reinforced days later when she took us by the hand to lead us on the long trek to the railroad overpass a few miles from our home to peer over the edge to watch a train draped with a flag pass under our feet. President John F. Kennedy was dead! While at the time my sister and I had no idea whether or not he was a good president (for to a child, all presidents are good), one thing we knew for sure, something vanished from people's eyes which has yet to return - American innocence.
As we reflect on this snap-shot of innocence lost, we wonder where it all began - that is, the overwhelming common-man devotion which inspired many to "Ask not what your country can do for you...". When did the admiration of the crowd begin? Was it when he was proclaimed a WWII hero as the Captain of PT-109
, or did it spring-forth from his impact as a Massachusetts Representative with his first political election
victory? While it may be hard to sort out how he had become so beloved, one thing is certain: a split-second in time along a Dallas street changed everything.
Feel free to share your "memory" of November 22, 1963.
To commemorate this historic moment (November 22, 1963), we've assembled a host of "assassination-report" newspapers from all over the country. They are viewable at: JFK Assassination

Rare & original newspapers have always been an excellent resource for capturing the context, contemporary response, and details of historic events. This truth was brought home recently via Todd Andrlik's, "Reporting the Revolutionary War: Before It Was History, It Was News
". Moving slightly into the future, Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (retired) George W. Emery does the same in his work, "In Their Own Words - The Navy Fights The War Of 1812
". Yet again we are reminded that "History is never more fascinating than when it's read from the day it was first reported." Additional details worth exploring may be found at:
Thanks for this latest contribution which brings the past into the present through the eyes of those who experienced the War of 1812 first-hand.

Additional recognition has been received for "Reporting the Revolutionary War
", by Todd Andrlik:
“Best American Revolution Book of 2012”
(February 5, 2013) NAPERVILLE, IL—Reporting the Revolutionary War claimed victory—as the best book of 2012 on the American Revolution!
Reporting the Revolutionary War: Before It Was History, It Was News (ISBN: 9781402269677; November 1, 2012; $39.99 U.S.; History; Hard Cover) by Todd Andrlik is being awarded the annual prize of best American Revolution book by The New York Revolutionary War Round Table.
This great honor puts Andrlik in the prestigious company of previous winners, including Maya Jasanoff, professor of history at Harvard’s Center for European Studies, for her book, Liberty’s Exiles: American Loyalists in the Revolutionary World; Benjamin L. Carp, professor of history at Tufts University, for Defiance of the Patriots: The Boston Tea Party and the Making of America; Mary Beth Norton of Cornell University; Charles Bracelen Flood; and Thomas Fleming.
“I’m grateful to the New York Revolutionary War Round Table and thrilled to join such an impressive list of past recipients,” said Andrlik. “I had the privilege of speaking at the Round Table in December and learned from its members just how much this book transcends normal history circles, appealing to both amateur and professional historians as well as casual history enthusiasts.”
The New York Revolutionary War Round Table was founded in 1958 and is now in its fifty-fifth year. It meets five times a year to hear a talk by an author of a new book on the Revolutionary War.
“Seldom, if ever, have we welcomed a book with more power to carry us back to the days of 1776 with such compelling authenticity,” said The New York Revolutionary War Round Table in its February 2013 newsletter announcing the honor...
By the way, this Best American Revolution Book of 2012 comes on the heels of Barnes & Noble naming it one of the Best Books of 2012. Good stuff.
Congratulations Todd... we're very proud of your accomplishment!

A few year's ago we posted an article which is worthy of a revisit. It regards the interaction of enemy troops on Christmas Eve from during WWI. Some stories are worth repeating (see link below). We've also created a Christmas-themed Pinterest pinboard we believe will be worth your time to view. Please have a wonderful Christmas. As for our Jewish friends, thanks for providing us with the reason for our season. Happy Chanukah to you as well.

A few weeks ago the staff of Alister & Paine Magazine
came to South Williamsport, PA to visit our historic newspapers archives and to interview Tim for the purpose of introducing their readership to the world of Rare & Early Newspapers
. It was fun getting to know such well-traveled individuals - introducing them to the hobby and hearing of their varied experiences. Sharing the love for collecting historic newspapers is always a pleasure... and based upon their reactions, "History continues to never be more fascinating than when read from the day it was first reported.

"Newspapers that shaped the world..."
Some of the better & more fascinating items found in old newspapers are not the most historic or significant, but rather the casual appearance of seemingly innocuous reports which excite collecting interest beyond the historic headline or dramatic presentation which are the more usual draw.
Much of what intrigues collectors can be lost within the body of reports, yet they tell a story of their own, such as the patriotic fervor of some colonist during the Revolutionary War. I recall an issue of the Edinburgh Evening Courant of June, 1776 reporting on American soldiers: "…Their uniform is a dark grey coarse linen frock, which covers the whole body...with the words, 'Death or Liberty' marked in large red letters on the right sleeve; and many of them are so enthusiastic as to have them marked with their own blood...".
This report is almost lost on page 3 yet its message is very telling of the spirit which caused the Americans to win the war against a world power despite insurmountable odds.
Some reports are fascinating by their bias. A Richmond newspaper of July, 1863 reporting on the Battle of Gettysburg notes: "...The Confederates did not gain a victory, neither did the enemy. He succeeded in defending himself & we failed in some portions of an attack...We killed more of the enemy than we lost; we took very many more prisoners than lost. The Confederate army did not leave the enemy until it had tried every link of his armour…”
Another newspaper notes: “ ..Information, certainly authentic, is in the hands of the Government, which leaves no doubt of the safety & triumph of the noble army. General Lee was victorious in all the combats which have taken place. He has been engaged with the whole force of the United States & has broken its backbone...",
Perhaps the most extraordinary example of optimism appeared in the Richmond Examiner of July 25: "…The result was not a defeat, it was not a loss; it was only not a victory...It was little else than a disappointment of extraordinary expectations...".
What a precious statement as an example of Confederate optimism.
Other little gems were very prophetic in their reporting, particularly when read with an historic perspective. A Scottish newspaper from 1775 sensed a lasting war with America as it reflected on the Battle of Bunker: "…The mischiefs which have already arisen & the greater calamities which are threatened from the unnatural war excited in America...It is impossible we can see, without the utmost alarm, preparations making for the prosecution of an expensive & ruinous war with our own Colonies...".
Some can be very recent, like the New York Times comment on rookie Mickey Mantle in 1951: "...Mantle, who gives every promise of developing into an outstanding baseball star, was ordered to report to his draft board next Wednesday..."
An editorial comment in the Army & Navy Journal just after the Gettysburg Address opined: “…a dedicatory speech by President Lincoln, which we give in full, as decidedly the best feature of the occasion, as well as one of the most felicitous utterances of its author." How true.
Some were prophetic even when the reports were simply wrong, like the Illustrated American article of 1898 reporting on "A New Flying Machine That Flies"--five years before the Wright brothers--when it said: "...It is impossible to imagine without terror the day when these mechanical birds, these flying apparitions, will be able to rain upon armies, hostile towns and escalating parties most deadly and most destructive explosives..."
. How true it would become.
There can be much to be found in newspapers beyond the headline. What a thrill it is to discover such hidden gems; reports that have escaped hundreds of years of history only to rediscovered with new-found relevance today. Such are just some of the joys of collecting early newspapers.
Please enjoy: "Newspapers that shaped the world..."

Two special events related to the Rare & Early Newspapers collectible are scheduled for this week:
