New York Tribune

City: New York

State: New York

One of the most influential newspapers in America, the New York Tribune was founded by Horace Greeley in 1841. Greeley used the newspaper as his mouthpiece, initially supporting the Whig Party and later the Republicans. During the Civil War, Greeley and his paper maintained a contentious relationship with Abraham Lincoln and famously featured the August 19, 1862, piece, "The Prayer of the Twenty Millions," encouraging Lincoln to adopt an emancipationist war policy.
