When war broke out and the nation was tearing itself apart, Lincoln authorized the most widespread censorship in the nation's history, closing down papers that were "disloyal" and even jailing or exiling editors who opposed enlistment or sympathized with secession. The telegraph, the new invention that made instant reporting possible, was moved to the office of Secretary of War Stanton to deny it to unfriendly newsmen. Holzer shows us politicized newspaper editors battling for power, and a masterly president using the press to speak directly to the people and shape the nation. 590 Gift of Dr. Gary Jason 600 10 Lincoln, Abraham,|d1809-1865|xRelations with journalists. 600 17 Lincoln, Abraham,|d1809-1865|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst00030184 611 27 American Civil War (1861-1865)|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01351658 650 0 Press and politics|zUnited States|xHistory|y19th century. 650 7 Journalists|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst00984188 650 7 Politics and government|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01919741 650 7 Press and politics|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01075866 650 7 Press coverage|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01198921 650 7 Relations with journalists|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01354360 651 0 United States|xHistory|yCivil War, 1861-1865|xJournalists. 651 0 United States|xHistory|yCivil War, 1861-1865|xPress coverage. 651 0 United States|xPolitics and government|y1861-1865. 651 7 United States|2fast|0(OCoLC)fst01204155 910 SK 201703
