Our Namesake

Horace Greeley (1811-1872) revolutionized American journalism and played a pivotal role in the Civil War era. Born on February 3, 1811, in Amherst, N.H., Greeley began his journalistic journey as an apprentice at 14 in Vermont. By 1831, he made his mark in New York City, founding the New Yorker in 1834 and the influential New York Tribune in 1841.

Greeley's editorial stance combined radical ideals with a commitment to social progress. His Tribune platform welcomed diverse voices, from social reformers to radical thinkers, shaping national discourse. Despite unprofitable investments, Greeley's Tribune became a journalistic force, advocating for cooperative efforts and Western settlers' rights.

During the Civil War, Greeley's editorials ranged from calls for peace to fervent appeals for action. His landmark editorial, "The Prayer of Twenty Million," symbolized Northern determination to end slavery.

Post-war, Greeley continued as a voice for reform, supporting Radical Republicans and African American rights. In 1872, he ran for president under the Republican Liberal party, advocating reason and compassion. Sadly, the campaign's strain and personal tragedy led to Greeley's passing on November 29, 1872.
