The Marietta Helicon. June 17, 1847
The Marietta Helicon began circulation around 1843. Charles W. Hancock published the weekly paper and J. B. Randall served as its editor. The paper aligned politically with the Whig Party and circulated in Marietta on Thursday mornings. The Helicon retitled itself the Constitutional Union in 1850 before merging with the Marietta Advocate. The two papers became the Cherokee Georgian in October 1854. Simeon A. Atkinson ceased printing the Cherokee Georgian in 1856 and established the Augusta Evening Dispatch later that year.
