American Citizen (newspaper)
The paper started in 1800 as the American citizen and general daily advertiser, though it was effectively a continuation of Greenleaf's New Daily Adverstiser (1796-1800) and the The Argus, or, Greenleaf's New Daily Adverstiser (1795-96).
The title was shortened to American Citizen in 1802. James Cheetham (1772–1810) was the leading editor of the paper, first becoming involved in 1801, and becoming sole publisher by April 1803. Cheetham was frequently sued for libel, although many of the suits ended in mistrial, dismissal, or deadlock.
