Harper's Weekly (A Journal of Civilization) was a 16 page illustrated newspaper based in New York City. It was published by Harper & Brothers from 1857 until 1916. It sometimes had long articles on the political intrigues and scandals of the day. Following the successful example of the Illustrated London News, Fletcher Harper began publishing Harper’s Monthly magazine in 1850. The publication was more intent on publishing established authors such as Dickens and Thackeray, but was a great enough success to begin publishing the Harper’s Weekly illustrated newspaper in 1857.

By 1860 the Weekly’s circulation had reached 200,000. Among its recurring features were the political cartoons of Thomas Nast who was recruited in 1862 and would remain with the Weekly for more than 20 years. Nast was a feared caricaturist, considered by some the father of American political cartooning. He was the originator of the use of animals to represent the political parties—the Democrat’s donkey and the Republican’s elephant—as well as the familiar character of Uncle Sam.

So as not to upset its wide readership in the South, Harper’s took a moderate editorial position on the issue of slavery. For this it was called by the more hawkish publications “Harper’s Weakly.” The Weekly supported the Stephen A. Douglas presidential campaign against Abraham Lincoln, but as the American Civil War broke out, Lincoln and the Union received full and loyal support of the publication. Arguably, some of the most important articles and illustrations came from the Weekly’s reporting on the war. It published many renderings in woodcut, by artists such as Alfred Waud, Winslow Homer, and Thomas Nast which are now important archives.

The newspaper usually contained 8 pages of text and 8 pages of gorgeous woodcut engravings, highly prized today for their detailed illustrations of the American CivilWar. The engravings are generally in 3 sizes: double page(DP - 21" X 16"), Full page (FP- 16" x 11") , and half page (HP- 10" x 8").
