155 years ago this morning, the June 11th, 1864 issue of a Washington DC-area newspaper, the Daily Morning Chronicle, was printed. Shortly thereafter, a copy traveled over 110 miles south to Cold Harbor, Virginia and ended up in the hands of Major General Ambrose E. Burnside, the commander of the Union IX Corps, as he was being photographed by the most famous of Civil War portrait-makers, Mathew Brady. On October 2, 2018, Creekside Digital’s President Jim Studnicki identified the illegible newspaper page shown in the original glass plate by comparing the unique layout of its text blocks to those found on microfilm at the Library of Congress.
