The Richmond Examiner was the name of two newspapers published in Richmond, Virginia during the 19th century. The first operated from 1847 to 1849. The second, also called the Daily Richmond Examiner, operated from 1861 through 1867, when it ceased publication.
Richmond Examiner in Southern VictoryEdit
The Richmond Examiner was the Radical Liberal Party's newspaper in Richmond, Virginia prior to the rise of the Freedom Party. It ran Tom Brearley's expose of the war crimes of prominent Freedomite Roger Kimball. Its Freedom Party-counterpart was the Sentinel.
During the Freedom Party takeover of the Confederate States between 1933-1936, the Examiner's Radical Liberal owners were intimidated by threats of an "accident" into handing the paper over to a pro-Freedom staff.
