This is a great resource.  The _Brooklyn Eagle_, btw, was Walt Whitman's
old paper. Try searching for "Socialist Labor Party" or "Labor Lyceum"
and it'll bring up virtually the entire history of the movement on the
verge of the formation of the Socialist Party.

It's a trend for libraries to do this nowadays.  And it is very
exciting.  Colorado Historical has posted almost all of the 19th century
press from that area at

But check this out, too...
