About this collection

Saline County Progress banner

 

 

The Saline County Progress began publication “immediately after the conclusion of a gigantic, cruel, civil war.” Reflecting on its beginnings, the July 23, 1869 issue declared that the Progress had “urged upon all, the Federal and Confederate alike, the immediate resumption of fraternal relations” and encouraged them to “unite as friends to promote their common good and the good of a common country.” The editors were also pleased to note in this issue, the beginning of their fifth volume, that the Progress had now “passed that precarious period in the career of all newspapers—the first few years of existence—and may now be classed among the established journals of the county.”
