Description

"Lincoln's Censor" examines the effect of government suppression on the Democratic press in Indiana during the spring of 1863. President Abraham Lincoln, who suspended the writ of habeas corpus in 1862, claiming presidential prerogatives given by the Constitution at times of invasion or rebellion, had some political misgivings about the intimidation of Democratic newspapers, but let the practice continue in Indiana from April through June of 1863.
