Abstract

Founded in 1856 in Bel Air, the county seat of Harford County, MD, the Aegis was a pro-southern paper in a decidedly Unionist community. This led to the departure of the founding editor, John Cox, in 1862. After the Civil War, the newspaper chronicled the growth of the local economy centered on food canning.
