The Nation’s “From the Archive”

From the magazine The Nation:

We’re pleased to report that the Nation‘s From the Archive project has just posted more than 100 historic articles from the magazine’s past bearing witness to important moments in history, as reported by America’s oldest weekly journal of politics and culture.

The pieces range 1865 (the magazine’s founding year) to 2001, and the section includes contemporaneous articles about everything from the Union’s infamous Andersonville prisoner of war camp, to Custer’s last stand, to the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, to Watergate, to John Hinckley’s shooting of President Reagan, among many other historic topics. There’s even an 1875 letter detailing how Abraham Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Address–written by someone who was there to hear it live!
