Newspapers revolutionized communication and the way people receive news.

Here are nine of the very first editions of famous American newspapers like New York Times and Washington Post. Many of the most iconic American newspapers have been around since the 1800s, when the Industrial Revolution took off and made print more accessible to readers . To break into such a robust industry as newspapers in the 19th century was no easy feat, according to W.

The paper will then use the next two weeks for public feedback and interest. Then, the paper will go into it’s weekly publishing schedule on November 15th with only 13,000 copies being mailed to Pulaski County residents.
