70 Newspaper titles from Fayetteville, Leaksville, Milton, and more!

Title for December 24, 1868 issue of The Old North State from Salisbury, N.C.

This week we have another 70 newspapers up on DigitalNC! These titles span 32 towns and almost as many counties! This batch also includes our first additions from the towns of Waco, Pores Knob, La Grange, Leaksville, Mount Olive, and Manson!

Over the next year, we’ll be adding millions of newspaper images to DigitalNC. These images were originally digitized a number of years ago in a partnership with Newspapers.com. That project focused on scanning microfilmed papers published before 1923 held by the North Carolina Collection in Wilson Special Collections Library. While you can currently search all of those pre-1923 issues on Newspapers.com, over the next year we will also make them available in our newspaper database as well. This will allow you to search that content alongside the 2 million pages already on our site – all completely open access and free to use.

This week’s additions include:

We have 21 new titles this week, including a couple from Petersburg, Virginia! In 1863, printer John William Syme relocated the Raleigh Register to Petersburg, Virginia. Production continued only until 1864, when the scarcity of supplies forced him to cease publication.

This week we also have one of the earliest advertisements for Pepsi buried on the last page of this issue of the New Bern Daily Journal. Created in a New Bern drug store in 1893, Pepsi was originally named “Brad’s Drink” after its creator and store owner, Caleb Bradham. In 1898 Bradham, changed the name to “Pepsi-Cola,” and in 1902 registered a trademark for the name. The first ad, misspelled as “Pesi-Cola,” is from August 8th, 1902 and the second, with the corrected name, is from August 31st, 1902.

48 Titles on DigitalNC this week!

Header from Charlotte, N.C. paper The Southern Mechanic

This week we have 48 titles up on DigitalNC! One of the newspapers added this week is The Holden Record. The short-lived Raleigh publication, solely dedicated to discrediting gubernatorial candidate W.W. Holden, was created by abolitionist and Raleigh Register co-publisher H.H. Helper. Holden went on to be elected governor, even though the paper painted him as a violent man and blamed him for the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Holden took an anti-Klan stance and this tension led to the Kirk-Holden War. He served until 1871, was impeached, and charged on eight counts for alleged crimes committed during this time. While the impeachment was politically motivated due to his suppression of the Klan, he is still the only North Carolina governor to have been impeached.
