NEW MANUSCRIPT PUBLISHED BY GTAGS
Local News, 1858 to 1865, from the Grand Traverse Herald contains the transcriptions of all Grand Traverse area articles published in this pioneer newspaper during its first seven years. The editor, Morgan Bates, wrote about farming, lumbering, shipping, complained about problems of mail delivery, promoted his Republican political views, and noted the marriages and deaths of local residents. Reading the articles provides a sense of what life was like for the earliest settlers in the region.
The new volume has 192 pages of transcriptions and an index of the 4,900 individuals, businesses, and ships mentioned.
Compiled by J. Homer Thiel
