  Daily Press Newspaper began
Brief Description:  The Daily Press Newspaper was begun during the Civil War. By the end of the war, it had more than 20,000 subscribers. The paper was owned and operated by its printers and other trade unionists. The Daily Press spearheaded the development of a labor party that won more than 35% of the votes in the 1864 mayoral elections. However, due to the paper’s radical philosophy, ethnic rivalries, the anti-union attitudes of many powerful people, and the status of the recently freed black workers, the paper was forced to cease publication shortly after the war.
Decade:  1860 - 1869
