THE GACKLE REPUBLICAN

1908-1920

 

I have obtained four rolls of Microfilm for this newspaper from the North Dakota State Historical Society.  I will be transcribing some of the major events that happen in and around Gackle.  This paper was a weekly, published on Fridays. 

The spelling and punctuation are as I find them. Added comments and/or corrections not found in the newspaper will be bracketed [_].  Items from community columns will be identified with the name of that city otherwise the news item is from the local Gackle column.
