Montana Post now in Chronicling America


The Montana Historical Society is pleased to announce that the complete run of the Montana Post (1864-1869) is now available on Chronicling America (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/). Ever wonder what the weather was like in Virginia City in 1865 or what those vigilantes were up to? Dig in!

The Montana Post and other Montana newspapers published prior to 1923 are being digitized as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) which is a partnership between the Library of Congress, National Endowment for the Humanities and state partners. More information about the Montana Historical Societies participation in the NDNP project and titles selected for digitization is available at: http://montanahistorywiki.pbworks.com/Montana-Digital-Newspaper-Project

The Daily Yellowstone Journal and Anaconda Standard should be included in the next Chronicling America update (December).
