Chronicling America is an open access database of historic American newspapers created by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress.  Through the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), NEH awards enable state partners to choose and digitize newspapers published between 1690 and 1963, representing their historical, cultural, and geographic diversity.  Chronicling America currently has over 13 million pages of historic newspapers, with more being added all the time.  State partners also contribute essays about each newspaper title’s history.
