About this title

Synopsis:

In her attic Rita Frost Lynch found rare, intact copies of the Courier, Murfreesboros first newspaper, from the years 1830-1832.

Stories, business notices, advertisements, and news items offer rare insight into not only Rutherford County in the early 1830s, but also the world. Articles vary from an entertaining account of a young sleep walker to an involved discussion of the present disturbances in Europe. Ads and essays give a firsthand look at the social culture of the age with classifieds reporting runaway slaves and letters reminding women of their secondary status.

About the Author:

Rita Frost Lynch is a graduate of Middle Tennessee State University and has spent most of her life in Rutherford County. She and her husband purchased the historic Ezra Jones Home in 1980, and it was in its attic that she discovered the copies of the Courier which make up the content of this book. Lynch serves on the board of the Oaklands Historic House Museum and the Middle Tennessee Symphony. She is the author of The Little Book on Coping and Once Upon a Lifetime, Vols. 1 and 2.
