About this collection

The Peoples’ Tribune banner

 

 

The Peoples’ Tribune was established October 4, 1865 with the ambitious goal to “preserve the natural and constitutional rights of individuals, promote justice, humanity, and patriotism, and secure the prosperity and happiness of the people.” Initial publisher C.J. Corwin believed this would be accomplished through “cordial support [for] the Conservative Administration of President Johnson” and opposition to radical Republicans. Becoming a popular and influential paper under the editorship of Maj. John F. Howes, the Tribune went on to receive state printing contracts, becoming the official paper of the state.
