The Springfield Mirror began publication May 5, 1855, voicing the opinions of the American Party. Launching its second volume in 1856, editor Boren stressed that “Agricultural and Educational interests…shall receive attention as before” and that the “early and speedy completion of our Rail Roads is an object greatly to be desired.” Eager to expand its influence, Boren called on readers to make sure that the Mirror “finds its way into every log cabin and hut in South West Missouri.”
Digital issues are available from May 8, 1856 to April 30, 1859. Additional Greene County newspapers are also available for research on microfilm at the State Historical Society of Missouri.
