Berry Craig's History Bits

(Nov. 27, 2012) - On this date in 1862, John H. Harney, owner-editor of the pro-Union Louisville Daily Democrat, might have been bragging to friends about a printing plant he got on the cheap.
The equipment had been used to publish the state's leading pro-Confederate newspaper to boot.
On Nov. 25, Harney showed up for an auction of the Louisville Daily Courier’s “printing establishment...in the absence of its proprietor in the South,” according to Lewis and Richard Collins’ History of Kentucky.
