Harper's Weekly was one of the most influential newspapers in America. Beginning on Jan. 3,1857, its run of nearly 60 years spanned a remarkable period in the history of our country, simultaneously reporting on it, influencing it, and making it. Harper's Weekly was a vital part of the Civil War and sheds light onto the politics, the literature, the style, the commerce, and, of course, the battles of that era in the American Story. These beautifully reproduced facsimiles contain national and international news, editorials, political cartoons, short stories, poetry, period advertising, and elegant illustrations by some of America's most famous artists, writers, and journalists. Harper's Weekly is reissued in its original format by Applewoods Books.
