We've digitized most of The True American from our microfilm holdings but, recently, we were given a great gift from the Lexington Public Library. They, LPL, hold 13 original issues and were kind enough let us scan them all. With these full color issues, our run of The True American is now a short 10 issues shy of a full run.
(First issue, June 3, 1845)
What's more, The True American will be the first full color newspaper available in the Kentuckiana Digital Library. The excitement continues!
