About Rag Linen
Rag Linen, named for the heavy-duty paper on which 18th century news was printed, is an educational archive of rare and historic newspapers that serve as the first drafts of history and the critical primary source material for historians, authors and educators.
Curator and publisher Todd Andrlik has built one of the most significant and comprehensive private collections of Revolutionary War era newspapers. Glimpses of the newspapers can be found on RagLinen.com, but a more comprehensive archive of American Revolution newspaper coverage is now publicly available for the first time in the forthcoming book, Reporting the Revolutionary War.
