About

After serving an apprenticeship at the Vermont Phoenix in Brattleboro, in 1861 printer Charles A. Pierce moved across Vermont and started the weekly Manchester Journal to serve the communities in the northern half of Bennington County. The new weekly met a local need, and by the end of its first year, the Journal was on "a reliable and permanent foundation." A typical country paper, the Manchester Journal included local, state, and national news, as well as literary items and miscellany. Pierce and his editors were strong supporters of the Union cause during the Civil War, and provided Journal readers with coverage of the activities that would "preserve our common country...against the base machinations of designing traitors."
