News - Fort Wayne Daily Gazette (IN)

The "Fort Wayne Daily Gazette" was founded in 1863 by David W. Jones, a printer and attorney from Marion, who began by hauling a printing press to Fort Wayne. Jones and his partner, Isaac Jenkinson, were dedicated Republicans and their newspaper supported President Abraham Lincoln and the Union cause in the Civil War. Fort Wayne was a Democratic stronghold with many Southern sympathizers at the time with the "Sentinel" calling for peace with the Confederacy and the ouster of Lincoln as president.
