H-Net Reviews: "Fort Wayne, Indiana, may be the perfect place to examine how a newspaper developed over nearly a century and a half. A city of churches, schools, and restaurants, it is moderately conservative politically and has been since the days the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette was first published during the Civil War. It is neither a big city nor a small town. At the same time, it cannot be called a small city or a large town either. Rather, it is a medium-sized city in the middle of America, in the nation’s nineteenth state, with a sizable middle-class population."
