The Georgia Gazette, Georgia's first newspaper, was established in the Spring of 1763 by James Johnston, who was also the Colony's official printer. The paper was published regularly from April 7, 1763 through November 21, 1765, when the Stamp Act forced its suspension for six months. Publication resumed on May 21, 1766 and continued through February 7, 1776.
This microfilm collection contains the issues from February 7, 1763 through May 23, 1770 and is the most complete run in existence. As such, the set stands as one of the earliest newspaper files that provides research information on pre-Revolutionary colonial life and times.
Titles from the Massachusetts Historical Society Collections may be purchased by individual reel.
