On another Friday more than a century ago -- April 21, 1865 -- Ann Arbor's Weekly Michigan Argus, a forerunner of The News, displayed little emotion, typographically, with its account of Gen. Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox. Note the headlines are hardly larger than the body type and the news itself is 12 days old and copied from a publication which had app[eared six days before. Communications were less advanced in the days of this Front Page From The Past but our grandfather has told us the news details were as welcome then as we hope they are today.

As a feature of National Newspaper Week, October 9-15, The News is presenting some of its old front pages carrying news stories which made history. The May 7, 1915, edition above recalls the "Lusitania Incident" of World War I. Although the United States did not enter the war until two years later, the loss of 114 American lives in the sinking of the Lusitania by a German submarine inflamed public opinion on the side of the Allies. As noted by the headline, first reports were the no lives were lost. Other headlines show that war news had "taken over" the front pages, although it is reassuring to note that as early as half a century ago the "location of Ann Arbor" was established.
