Huzzah! Another item in my “Colonial Williamsburg Project” knocked down! I used Sunni’s default replacement newspaper, due to the fact it’s a fixed version (and not the broken one on MTS). I thought it safer to go with that than going with one that didn’t work for all expansions and was broke.
“The original Virginia Gazette, the first newspaper ever published in Virginia, was established by William Parks, who printed the first four-page edition on August 6, 1736. Its motto was ‘Containing the freshest Advices, Foreign and Domestic.’ …In 1743, Parks built a paper mill in Williamsburg; he purchased the raw material to create newsprint from Benjamin Franklin. The paper was published, successively, by Parks (1736-1750), William Hunter (1751-1761), Joseph Royle (1761-1765), Alexander Purdie and John Dixon(1766-1775), Dixon and Hunter (1775-1778), and Dixon and Thomas Nicolson (1779-1780). The last issue was published on April 8, 1780,after which point the paper relocated to Richmond, Virginia’s new capital.
