Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, later renamed Leslie's Weekly, was an illustrated literary and news magazine founded in 1855 and published until 1922. It was one of several magazines started by publisher and illustrator Frank Leslie. Throughout its decades of existence, the weekly provided illustrations and reports—first with wood engravings and Daguerreotypes, later with more advanced forms of photography—of wars from John Brown's raid at Harpers Ferry and the Civil War until the Spanish–American War and the First World War. It often took a strongly patriotic stance and frequently featured cover pictures of soldiers and heroic battle stories.  [sl]
