Weekly state rights' sentinel. September 2, 1836
Augustus Baldwin Longstreet purchased the North American Gazette and renamed it the State Rights’ Sentinel in 1834. Within the publication, Longstreet printed his literary fiction, some of which he would later collect in his Georgia Scenes publication. William E. Jones later owned and edited the Sentinel as a stand-alone paper for a brief period of time. In December of 1836, Jones purchased the Augusta Chronicle from A. H. & William F. Pemberton and merged it with the Sentinel. He renamed the paper the Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel in January of the 1837. It kept the title for the next forty years.
