American Pamphlets 1820-1922

25,000+ pamphlets from the New York Historical Society’s collections.  These 19th and early 20th century pamphlets cover contentious topics related to politics and government, religion and religious movements, art and entertainment, business and economics, health and medicine, education, immigrants and ethnic groups, Native Americans, African Americans, slavery and the Civil War,  women, and science and technology.

American Broadsides and Ephemera

30,000+ searchable images of campaign literature, posters, advertisements, trade cards, programs, and other items that provide insight into the history, culture, and daily life of Americans in the 18th and 19th centuries.  Created locally for short-lived, specific purposes, most of these materials would ordinarily have been destroyed.
