Gazette of the United States

The Gazette of the United States was an early American newspaper, first issued on April 15, 1789, that was friendly to the Federalist Party. Founded by John Fenno, it was intended to unify the country under its new government. As the leading Federalist newspaper of the 1780s and 1790s, it praised the Washington administration and its policies. Its Federalist sponsors, chiefly Alexander Hamilton, granted it substantial funding, semi-official status, and documents to print. The influence of the newspaper inspired the creation of the National Gazette, a rival that supported the Democratic-Republican cause. Although its influence declined around the turn of the century, the Gazette of the United States continued to print under different editors until its last issue on March 7, 1818. ()
