2013 April 8: New Publication Date
The Prescott Journal had been publishing on Wednesdays, but with the April 11, 1863, issue it moved to a Saturday publication date, the same day as The Polk County Press. Editor Lute Taylor said merely, “The JOURNAL will hereafter be issued on Saturday,” with no further explanation why.
Wednesdays in 1863 are Mondays in 2013, and 1863 Saturdays are Thursdays in 2013 and hence our new publication day. In order to get our posts back in sync with both newspapers publishing on the same day, we will use the next few days to catch up with some posts that have languished in our back-file.
