Second newspaper published in Iowa


MONTROSE (KWWL) -- The second newspaper of Iowa was published June 28, 1837 in Montrose.  The first editor and publisher was a man by the name of Dr. Isaac Galland.

The paper was not successful financially, and was soon sold to James G. Edwards.  The paper later moved to Fort Madison, and in 1838 was renamed the Fort Madison Patriot.
