The Argus. May 30, 1828
Cosam Emir Bartlett established two short-lived Savannah newspapers, a weekly and daily, in 1828. The weekly Argus began publication on May 30, 1828. Bartlett supported the newly formed Union party and published opposition to Troup party members alongside state and local news. Like its daily counterpart, the Savannah Mercury, the Argus ceased printing in 1829 when Bartlett moved to Columbus, Georgia, to establish another Union newspaper, the Democrat.
