The Atlanta daily herald. May 2, 1873
Alexander St. Clair-Abrams, in an attempt to compete for influence with the Constitution, established the Daily Herald in 1872. That same year, Henry W. Grady became a partial owner of the paper and after Abrams left the paper in 1873, Grady became the editor. It was in the Daily Herald that Grady began his celebrated crusade for an industrialized "New South." Despite the attention Grady received for his writings, the Herald was acquired and shut down by the Atlanta Constitution in February of 1876.
