This story on Press vs. Abraham Lincoln gives a glimpse. One of America’s greatest Sons and Leaders had his hands full with the newspapers!
Also, the whole Newseum website is outstanding. I have visited the actual Newseum in Washington D.C. and highly recommend taking your kids. Very educational and fun. I even did an NPR interview there.
There are some nice condos just next the Newseum, but D.C. is for rich people and not poor war correspondents!
