About

The Morning Chronicle was a short-lived daily (triweekly during summer months) newspaper founded in 1817 in Savannah, Georgia. Samuel Ker acted as the publication’s editor for its two-year run. The paper displayed sheet-sizes and printing styles consistent with its contemporary counterparts. The Chronicle featured international, government, and local columns alongside various advertisements for subscribers who paid the six dollar annual subscription. Other Savannah newspapers of the time proved more popular and the Chronicle ceased circulation in 1819.
