The bee. March 25, 1865
George Nicoll Nichols was a prominent printer and businessman who operated out of Savannah, Georgia and established a long-term book and job printing office in 1858 at the Southwest corner of Drayton and Bay Street. During the Civil War, Nichols worked as a printer for the Confederate Government and in 1865, he decided to enter the newspaper business. He was associated with the Savannah Georgian before founding The Bee in February, 1865. The Bee was a small, weekly, advertising sheet that lasted for less than a year. The paper’s subject matter consisted of essays, theater reviews, and news of local events, but it did not try to compete with the local, state, and international news covered by Savannah’s much larger dailies. The paper was short-lived and Nichols subsequently founded and sold the Savannah Advertiser in 1866 before leaving the newspaper business.
