No Images Available

The St. Louis American was started as an American Republican organ in December, 1844. At its inauguration H.H. Holton was its publisher; by 1847 J.D. Learned had replaced Holton. On June 21, 1847 the Republican announced that the American had been revived after a suspension of two months and that in the future it was to be conducted by a committee of the American Republican party, headed by J.M. Julian. It expired shortly afterwards.
