Library of Congress Newspapers Project (Chronicling America)

Chronicling America is a searchable database of every newpaper published in the United States from 1690 until today. The directory will tell you which libraries maintain holdings of these newspapers. This project is in conjunction with the National Digital Newspaper Project. Many newspapers from 1860 until 1922 are digitized on this site.
