A Free Press in FreeHand: The Spirit of American Blogging in the Handwritten New

Product Details

Synopsis
This is the astonishing story of North Carolinian John McLean Harrington, a maverick journalist who before and during the Civil War handwrote up to a hundred copies of each issue of his own various newspapers. As cultural and military battle lines were drawn across the South, Harrington, while postmaster in Harnett County, “blogged” in longhand about everything from the plight of slaves to unrequited love, international relations, and technology. He became an outspoken dilettante journalist, a defender of press freedom, and one of the nation’s most productive longhand journalists. Includes photos and accompanying transcriptions of two complete issues of Harrington’s papers.
