About this collection

Marshall Democrat banner

 

 

Claiborne Fox Jackson was one of the founders of the Marshall Democrat which opened its “office west side of the public square, next door to the Post Office.” The paper—which published its inaugural issue on January 15, 1858—promised to cover “industry, trade, political matters, [and] light reading” in its pages and use “fair and honorable means of convincing our political opponents of their error.” The Democrat was published through 1861 when, according to William Napton’s 1910 volume, Past and Present of Saline County, “editors, typos, devils and all entered the army.”
