Product Description

BECOME AN EYEWITNESS TO HISTORY!


Buried deep within the pages of America's newspapers from a century ago are an untold number of amazing stories waiting to be discovered. If you’re a history buff or just love a great story, you’ll love The Yesteryear Gazette!



Thanks to the phenomenal digital collection of vintage American newspapers assembled by the Library of Congress, you can now enjoy a ringside seat to historical and cultural events from a century or more ago. In this first volume of The Yesteryear Gazette, we have collected twenty of the most compelling, moving, humorous and quirky stories from this treasure trove of American newspapers, each one illustrated with fascinating vintage photos.



Highlights include…


  • The first newspaper accounts of the 1865 Lincoln assassination.

  • A deeply moving firsthand account of a Titanic survivor.

  • The riveting newspaper accounts of the 1893 Lizzie Borden trial.

  • The story of the first woman to ride a bicycle around the world.

  • Susan B. Anthony's fascinating and final 1905 in-depth interview.

  • A fun interview with the quirky Eva Tanguay, the Queen of Vaudeville.

  • The horrifying accounts of the 1903 Chicago theater fire that killed over 600 people.

  • The tragic newspaper accounts of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.


 Plus 12 more great stories!



All of these stories have been carefully transcribed directly from the original newspaper stories. Some have been edited for length or clarity. Each story includes a link to the original newspaper story, as well as links to additional information. Most stories also include a link to a related video. Each story, as well, includes an introduction in order to provide some background and context.
