The Firebrand: Clay Center, Clay County, Kansas; December 1883-November 1884

Title

The Firebrand: Clay Center, Clay County, Kansas; December 1883-November 1884

Description

Among the 713 newspapers in print in Kansas in the 1880s, a single short-lived newspaper provides insight into political shifts and battles in small towns. The Firebrand newspaper in Clay Center provided inflammatory rhetoric for a single year, also switching political sides from Republican to Democrat. This is an in-depth study of one newspaper; the author, a journalism major, read every issue and perceptively analyzes
tone, message, and content.
