Journalism in the Fallen Confederacy

Debra Reddin van Tuyll, Nancy Mckenzie Dupont, Joseph R. Hayden

Research output: Book/ReportBook


During the American Civil War, several newspapers remained Confederate sympathizers despite their locations being occupied by Union troops. Examining the experiences of newspapers in four more-or-less typical situations, the authors explore what methods of suppression occupiers used, how occupation influenced the editorial and business sides of the press, and how occupation impacted freedom of the press.
