Tom posted a great link for newspaper sources from the Mexican War era. Does anyone know of a decent link to publications from the 1820's and 30's? Id especially like to see Whig and pro-Jacksonian publications like the Jackson Gazette and Truth Teller. Thanks, Jim PS: I started this new thread so as not to clutter up our "links" section. If anyone can help me out with links referencing the query, please post them in the "Pertinent Links" thread, and I'll subsequently delete this question.

Phil, a doff of the cap and a deep bow to you for posting that link. I have *never* had access to microfilm of the New Orleans Bee, and now here it is, online. Although it's in a format where you have to call up PDFs one page at a time, and the dates of the pages aren't identified in the file names, at least it's readily available. Looks like you'd need high-speed internet to navigate through the files efficiently. Also, from what I've seen, they scanned direct from microfilm, so there's some pages where the outer columns may be faint. You can zoom right in pretty clearly, though.
