Founded by John R. Walker and John Norvell in 1829 as The Pennsylvania Inquirer, this is the third-oldest surviving daily newspaper in the U.S. The Inquirer first became a major newspaper during the American Civil War when its war coverage was popular on both sides. The paper's circulation dropped after the war, then rose by the end of the 19th century.
This paper began as a four-page weekly called The Pittsburgh Gazette, first published in 1786 by Hugh Henry Brackenridge. This was the first newspaper published west of the Allegheny Mountains. Published by Joseph Hall and John Scull, the paper covered the start of the nation and published the newly adopted Constitution of the United States. Source: Wikipedia.
