From the Archives: Herald reaches back to 1848

How far back does the Herald go?

I’d say it is one of the top questions readers ask. Today I’ll help answer that one as best I can:





I dug up the four-page edition of the Nov. 1, 1848, evening edition of the Boston Herald. That year is as far back as our archive goes. We don’t have every month from back then, but we sure do have Nov. 1.

It’s a fascinating read from this day back then. Here are some photos from this date in history.
