Extra-Extra! Hartford Courant Historical: a Real Eye-Opener!

Imagine yourself sipping a hot cup of coffee, reaching for the morning paper. What if the headline that greeted you dated from 1764? You might not believe your eyes, but indeed, it’s now possible to read the same articles read by Connecticut colonists during the Revolutionary War, or Connecticut citizens in the midst of World War I. Time travel has never been so easy. Just type your search terms into the library’s new database available from http://library2.fairfield.edu/databases.php, and browse the Hartford Courant from 1764-1922. Articles are reproduced in facsimile.
