INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL NEWS, Scotland, Pennsylvania An in-house newspaper of this school which is a "Member of the Pennsylvania Commission of Soldiers' Orphan Schools", which by definition seemed to focus on those orphaned by military action. The school still exists today, however is being dissolved after 114 years of existence. Given its close proximity to Gettysburg and its connection to the military, It is not surprising that much of the content is reflective on the various battles, memorials, heroes, etc. from the Civil War, each with front page war-related content.
Here is a collection of 4 issues, dated October 11, 1906; July 25, Aug. 8, Sept. 26, 1907. Each is complete in 4 pages and in nice condition as high quality newsprint was used.
