I am enjoying the stack of 1901 Fulton Patriots that I have been looking through since Christmas time. Up to now, I had come across only one or two pages of the very old Patriots at a time – the oldest just a few years after the first issues of the paper were published in 1846. This is the first entire year of early 1900 Patriots I have looked at.
From the information box inside the front cover of each issue:
Wednesday, March 27, 1901
