About

The Albany Courier was a weekly Whig-aligned newspaper founded in 1841. By 1847, the paper was published by Gardner, Brother & Harvey. On the topic of the Mexican-American war, the Courier was among the earliest Whig papers in Georgia to criticize the war outright. Nelson Tift’s Democratic Albany Patriot was the Courier’s commercial competitor during the 1840s. As with many Whig newspapers of the era, the Courier ceased publication sometime in the late 1840s.
