During the Civil War, the New York Times exercised its Second Amendment rights

In the July 12, 2020 Sunday edition of the New York Post, Michael Goodwin has a piece "Inside the Confederate History of the New York Times. Confederates in the Closet," which appears at pages 12 and 13.

There does not seem to be much discussion of the pre-Adolph Ochs era of the New York Times.

It is worth noting how the New York Times of the Civil War era dealt with rioters.

See the IPBiz post titled -- IPBiz: Patents, Draft Riots, and Little Big Horn -- to see how the Times brandished Gatling guns.
