About

Published by S. A. Atkinson with daily and weekly editions, the Augusta Evening Dispatch was a short-lived newspaper that circulated from 1857 to 1861. The daily edition sold at a yearly subscription cost of four dollars while the weekly only required a dollar and a half yearly; the paper self-reported a combined 17,000 daily and weekly subscribers. During its run, The Evening Dispatch's offices were located on McIntosh Street. In the 1860 presidential election, Atkinson used the paper to support Southern Democrats John C. Breckinridge and Joseph Lane.
