Jefferson City Missouri State Times banner

 

 

In its second issue—dated January 3, 1863—the Jefferson City Missouri State Times celebrated President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, claiming that “millions of bondmen are freed from the evils of slavery and enter upon a career of freedom.” The Times proclaimed that this “eminently wise and desirable” act marked the “commencement of a new era in American history.” The successor of the Examiner, the Times was considered to be a radical and influential journal.
