The Arkansas State Gazette suspended operation when Union forces captured Little Rock (Pulaski County). Paper shortages during the war hurt the Gazette, as they did most other Southern newspapers. Christopher Columbus Danley and William Holtzman revived the Gazette on May 1, 1865. Danley editorialized in favor of resumed allegiance to the Union. The Gazette became the first state newspaper to subscribe to new telegraphic services that gave it access to news from places such as St. Louis, Missouri; Memphis, Tennessee; and New Orleans, Louisiana.
