Hot off the Press-Pensacola Journal Date Range Expanded

We’re constantly working towards digitizing more content at the Florida and Puerto Rico Digital Newspaper Project. Today we’re happy to announce that 8,850 new pages of the Pensacola Journal are now live on Chronicling America. This date range expansion covers September 1917 through April 1920, which includes most of the time during which the United State was involved in World War I. We’ve compiled a few articles to give you a taste of what is now available online.
