Collection History
(Upper Marlboro, Prince George's County: T. J. Turner)

The Planter's Advocate began publication September 3, 1853 [v. 3, no. 2] and ceased in October 1861[?]. It was published weekly. It was also published as the Planters Advocate and Southern Maryland Advertiser. The newspaper continues the Planter's Advocate and Southern Maryland Advertiser (Upper Marlboro: 1851).

Thomas J. Turner, editor of the Planter's Advocate and Southern Maryland Advertiser which ceased in 1853, remained editor and proprietor of the Planter's Advocate until October 1861. A note in the St. Mary's Beacon, Leonardtown, October 31, 1861, indicates that the Planter's Advocate had been banned from the mails. An obituary printed in the Prince George's Enquirer, January 6, 1882, for Michael J. Slayman, states Turner fled the area to escape arrest by Federal authorities.

Issues of this newspaper are from the collections of the Enoch Pratt Free Library and the Maryland Historical Society. Issues from the Pratt were deposited there by the publishers of the Enquirer-Gazette, Upper Marlboro.
