The Independent Chronicle and the Universal Advertiser (Boston: 1798)

The Independent Chronicle (1776–1840) was a newspaper in Boston, Massachusetts. It originated in 1768 as The Essex Gazette (v.1–7) in Salem, and The New-England Chronicle (v.7–9) in Cambridge, before settling in 1776 in Boston as The Independent Chronicle. Publishers included Edward E. Powars, Nathaniel Willis, and Adams & Rhoades;[1] and for some time it operated from offices on Court Street formerly occupied by James Franklin.[2] As of the 1820s, "the Chronicle [was] the oldest newspaper ... published in Boston; and has long been considered one of the principal republican papers in the state; and its influence has, at all times, been in exact proportion to the popularity of the cause which it has so warmly espoused."[3] After 1840 the paper continued as the Boston Semi-weekly Advertiser published by Nathan Hale.[4]
