Abstract : The author suggests that military education in mass communication should include a study of the development of the American press. The paper examines some of the more significant aspects of the history and development of the press, touching on the First Amendment, its origins, printing in Early England, and the Eighteenth Century English Press. The paper then studies the attitudes of the American press through the first century after ratification and through the wars of the 20th century. The paper also examines the continuing conflict between press and government from the Roosevelt administration to the present.
