Newspaper of the Revolution!

On April 7, 1755, Edes and Gill became the proprietors of The Boston Gazette and Country Journal. Edes was also a well known member of the Sons of Liberty. According to the author of Infamous Scribblers (2006), the Boston Gazette, arguably the most influential newspaper the country has ever known, got us into the Revolutionary War, sped up the course of the war and may have even determined the outcome of the war.
