Library of Congress Historical Newspapers

Historical newspapers until 1922


Why 1922?

Why only until 1922?

In 1998, a copyright law was passed that said that the longest time a work can be copyrighted is 75 years.  So in 1998, everything published before 1923 entered the publich domain, which means the public can use it without worrying about violating copyright laws.  You still have to cite it, though!
