About

The Daily Register of Wheeling, West Virginia was the product of 31-year-old Lewis Baker, an Ohio native who moved to Wheeling prior to the Civil War. Baker purchased the printing press of the defunct Wheeling Daily Press and published the Register's first issue in July 1863. Shortly afterward, Baker was joined as editor by O.S. Long and the two men guided the young newspaper throughout its turbulent early years.
