About this collection

Original copies of the Cape Girardeau Weekly Argus, a newspaper published in Cape Girardeau,  [MO.]  The newspaper is bound into 4 books.  Dates range from 1863 Jun 18 - 1871 Jun 1 when publication ceased.

The Cape Girardeau Weekly Argus was purchased from David Westenfeld and donated to Special Collections by the Cape Girardeau County Genealogical Society and the Center for Regional History

During the digitation process the Argus was scanned with optical character recognition software (OCR) making the text searchable.  Because OCR attempts to read every single character and serif,  and the Argus was printed in a difficult to read font, the OCR text has many typos and strange characters.   Special Collections and Archives is in the process of fixing these mistakes, we apologize for the inconvience this causes.  If you have any questions about the Argus please contact us at semoarchives@semo.edu.
