Years in print:
In 1847, Charles Keemle, Matthew Field and Joseph M. Field started the Reveille, a daily. Field was at that time recognized as one of the most fascinating newspaper writers in the country…Five years the Reveille delighted St. Louis readers. Then it was sold [to Edmund Flagg] and merged in the People’s Organ [in October of 1850].
