Default Library of Congress Historic Newspaper Collection

The U.S. Library of Congress has a large collection digitized U.S. newspapers on-line. The NY Times is missing but the New York Tribune is there as well as the Atlanta Constitution and other large city papers. Some of the smaller papers are interesting such as the Alexandria Gazette of 09/18/1888 which states police had taken into custody a German by the name of Ludwig. I used the search criteria of "Whitechapel" and the appropriate date range and had the results sorted by date.

Anyway, the link is:

http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/

Be good,

Billy

Correction, the Atlanta Constitution is NOT at the LOC! I got confused on my digital newspaper sources. That paper is on a subscription site, Fold3.

My apologies,

Billy

My pleasure GUT. Would anyone like me to download and save as either JPG or PDF files the relevant Atlanta Constitution and/or the San Francisco Chronicle articles?
