Scope and Contents

The Natchez Trace Broadside Collection, 1785-1930, consists of broadsides that represent legal, social, political, commercial, and military issues thought to be of such importance that they needed to be shared with the public before the advent of mass communication. These public notices are not only instant reflections of an historic time and place and therefore important to history researchers, but they are also outstanding examples of early frontier printing history. The bulk of the broadsides come from Louisiana and Mississippi, but also represented are Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Canada.
