How to Greet a Lady or Gentleman (When You’re in 1849)

After doing so much research in Forsyth County, GA (where old newspapers are few and far between), I was delighted to discover that the Keowee Courier from Pickens County, SC has been printing almost continuously since 1849. Yay!

This little gem comes from the Keowee Courier’s very first issue on May 18th, 1849.

From the Keowee Courier (Pickens County, SC) Vol. 1, Issue 1, May 18, 1948.

Tl;dr “Take your hats ALL the way off, people.”
