Chronicling America

Chronicling America:  Search America's historic newspaper pages from 1836-1922 or use the U.S. Newspaper Directory to find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present. Chronicling America is sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress.

Easy to use you can limit by state and date.  Newspapers are a great source for understanding the issues of a particular time and peoples response.   Review these older sources and you might discover that many of the same issues are topical today.
