Washington Territorial Newspapers Online

"The Historical Newspapers in Washington project is part of the Washington State Library's program to make its rare, historical resources more accessible to students, teachers and citizens across the state." The project has 12 early newspapers online, including the Oregonian, the Walla Walla Statesman, and the Spokan Falls Review. The newspapers are fully indexed and searchable. A search for Kamiakin for example brings up more than 40 articles. This is an amazing resource and a wonderful educational tool for middle schoolers to graduate students.
