The Communication Revolution and its impact during the Civil War
The Civil War took place at a time when the availability of information exceeded that of previous decades and centuries. Literacy was increasing and printed documents were more widely available as a result of the mechanisation brought about by the printing press. The War itself was the catalyst for new publications to emerge and communication channels to be expanded and exploited. This booklet explores the background and consequences of this revolution and how news would have reached Nantwich.
