It was supposely the first newspaper in the Kansas Territory.The first issue was 15 Sept.1854,not 1852. It was printed under a old elm tree. The next issue was 22 Sept.from W.H.A.'s newly constructed small wood building. It was supposely the first building (commerical?) built in Leavenworth City. A Gen. Lucien J. Easton became the editor and partner about 6 wks. after the 1st issue. The last issue was dated 27 June 1861. Ownership had changed in the Fall of 1860. I have a lenghty 1880-82 article on the newspaper.
