About this collection

The Neosho Times banner

 

 

In 1861, A.M. Sevier’s newspaper, The Neosho Herald, abruptly halted publication when the Confederates took his press to Arkansas and destroyed it. Sevier then joined the Federal Army, but he returned to Neosho after the war and started The Neosho Times.


According to the 1877 edition of Pettengill’s Newspaper Directory and Advertisers’ Handbook, the Times was “democratic in politics but devotes itself chiefly to the advancement of the interests of the town and vicinity, giving full local news and making itself necessary to the people of the locality.”
