The Capital is a newspaper that was published weekly in Washington, D.C. from March 12, 1871 through June of 1889. Donn Piatt, of Ohio served as editor from 1871-1879 and wrote some of the editorials. This digital version of The Capital includes every issue published in volumes 1-9, from March 12, 1871 through February 22, 1880. The Capital is a primary record of the American Reconstruction Period
Journalist, legislator and Civil War veteran (attaining the rank of colonel), as a publisher Donn Piatt exercised an undisguised, negative point of view toward the political corruptions within the Grant administration. Piatt did not limit his sardonic commentary to the executive branch, but attacked Congress, the judicial system, religion, civic impropriety, fraud and other social follies. Although The Capital would always remain an outlet for Piatt’s non-partisan excoriations and trenchant humor, it also published essays, stories and poems by prominent contemporary writers such as Bret Harte, Harriet Prescott Spofford, Celia Logan, “Mrs. Grundy,” and Sarah Piatt (wife of Donn Piatt’s cousin, John James Piatt).
