About this collection

Macon Gazette banner

 

 

The first issue of the Macon Gazette, published in January 1862, left no doubt to the leanings of the newspaper and the editor and owner Francis Taylor , “As for politics, it is sufficient at the present time to say, that I am a Union man, and that the present gigantic efforts of the National Government for its preservation have my earnest and unaffected sympathies.” The Gazette reported extensively on the Civil War filling the majority of this four-page paper with articles and stories related to the war.
