The Chattooga advertiser. June 15, 1871
Mat. J. Pate and James A. Phirl published the first issue of the Chattooga Advertiser in January 1871 in Summerville, Georgia. The newspaper circulated every Thursday at a subscription cost of two dollars and served as Chattooga County’s legal organ. In October 1871, Pate and Phirl sold the publication to G. A. R. Tucker who managed the paper for the rest of its brief run. Captain Melville Dwinnell of the long-standing Rome Courier purchased the Chattooga Advertiser from Tucker in January 1873 and merged the Advertiser’s subscription list with the Courier’s. Dwinnell already owned a robust printing press, so he sold the Advertiser printing office for $600 later that year.
