About this collection

St. Joseph Daily Morning Herald banner

 

 

When the St. Joseph Morning Herald began publication on February 12, 1862, its salutatory message declared: “We link our fortunes and our destiny to the cause of the Union, believing it a just, holy, and righteous cause and shall work with all our might, mind, and strength for its success.” Commencing its second volume on February 13, 1863, the Herald affirmed its affiliation, claiming: “we shall continue to publish an unconditional Union paper—without regard to consequences…we are proud of our position before the people.” This daily sheet became The Morning Herald and Daily Tribune on October 1, 1864, eventually just the Herald in 1879.  From 18820 until 1899 it also published a weekly paper.

The St. Joseph Herald and its various titles are examples of urban newspapers of the era. This daily paper provided the growing town of St. Joseph with a connection to the large metropolitan regions in the east by covering local, national, and international news.
