Meriwether Lewis, explorer turned governor of this new American territory, believed its citizens needed a newspaper and the Missouri Gazette was born. This is a rare copy of Volume 1 Issue Number 3 of Tuesday, July 26, 1808ƒPrinted by Joseph Charles, Printer to the Territory of St. Louis, Louisiana. According to a recent article written by Tim OÍNeil of the St. Louis Post- Gazette, no original issue of the first edition exists leaving us only subsequent issues such as this one featured. Local news consisted largely of public notices, Auctions etc. This particular issue discusses ñPatriotic Effusionsî. ñThe Anniversary of American Independence has been celebrated byƒan Oration from Thomas Todd, Esq. and an Ode from Shadrack Bond, jun. Esq. Charless, had the market to himself until 1815, when the Western Journal hit the streets. He sold the Gazette four years later. It was renamed the Missouri Republic and, in variations on that name, survived until 1919. A wonderful look back into our colorful and historical past, numerous splits, fraying on the edges as well as internal pages archivally backed and taped.
