Even the news was a business. As Americans streamed into cities from little cities and overseas, JOURNALISTS realized the economic potential. If half Boston's voters would obtain a newspaper 3 times every week, a publisher may become a wealthy person.


The Linotype, unreal in 1883, allowed for a lot of quicker printing of the many a lot of papers. The market was there. The technology was there. All that was necessary was a gaggle of entrepreneurs daring enough to seize the chance. The result was  War of American Independence in print.

The modern Yankee NEWSPAPER took its acquainted kind throughout the Gilded Age. To take advantage of people who valued Sunday leisure, the Sunday newspaper was dilated and divided into supplements.
