Antipfaff History

In 1842 there appeared a sheet with the title Antipfaff (Antipriest). It was edited by Heinrich Koch, a born agitator, who was the first in St. Louis to preach communism. He left St. Louis and settled in a communist colony, and in 1845 his paper was merged into the Vorwaerts, which managed to live only about a year.
