Die Freie Presse für Texas, a German newspaper published by the Texas Free Press Company in San Antonio, was founded on July 15, 1865, by August Siemering and Company. Records include correspondence, legal papers, memoranda, newspapers and clippings, business accounts, galley proofs, broadsides, and pamphlets, relating to the establishment and operation of a German-language newspaper in Texas. From 1877-1918, the newspaper supported the San Antonio German immigrant and merchant communities with political endorsements, advertising, local news, serialized fiction, and national news, from a 19th-century Republican perspective.
