Reenactor Volunteer at the Shoal Creek Living History Museum near Liberty MO. - Town Newspaper for 1st Saturday's program.
We portray a small 19th Century Print Shop which produces a Country Newspaper for our little town of Shoal Creek in Clay County Missouri. The following educational video was produced by the University of Illinois at Urbana - Champaign. This is part 3 of a bigger series on 19th Century newspapers. It has a lot of good information about 19th century country newspapers which is pretty much what our Town newspaper impression is and what we are trying to portray.
