Lancaster Daily Intelligencer (1880-1890)

Founded in 1864, the Lancaster Daily Intelligencer had become by the 1880s the leading daily in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and a crusading opposition publication in a city beset with growing pains. It was already one of the oldest continuous newspapers in the state and nation, and by this time it had transformed itself from primarily a political organ into a conduit for local information and an advocate for clean politics and civic reform.
