BIA superintendents scrupulously recorded their interactions with Native American tribes, leaving behind an astoundingly detailed archive that is captured here in full. Now, these rare materials are available for the first time in a readily accessible digital collection, which also contains detailed historical background notes created by the curators of the National Archives.

Series 19, 1766-1877: The Politics of Race in the South includes some of the most influential and widely read papers below the Mason-Dixon Line, as well as newspapers from border states, Washington DC, and other select titles. Series 19 is specifically designed to work in concert with Series 18, 1825-1878: Racial Awakening in the Northeast, inviting researchers working across academic disciplines to discern, interpret, and evaluate

    New England newspapers played a pivotal role in shaping the national discourse around slavery and civil rights in the decades leading up to and following the American Civil War. Abolitionists, political parties, and religious leaders all used newspapers to sway readers to their causes, making such papers essential material for researchers studying racial and social justice movements. Early American Newspapers, Series 18, 1825-1879: Racial Awakening in the Northeast brings these newspapers together in a fully searchable online resource, offering research and teaching opportunities across a variety of academic disciplines.
