Missouri Demokrat History

Edward Warren, a young lawyer of St. Louis, achieved considerable reputation as the "poet" of the Anzeiger. In 1843 he started the Demokrat, because the Anzeiger was not radical enough in its support of the Van Buren administration. He was an active and capable man, but the Germans regarded him as being more of a politician than a journalist, and withheld their confidence. His paper consequently survived only two years.
