The newspaper continues the Baltimore County Advocate and General Advertiser (Cockeysville: 1850) and merged with the American (Towson: 1862) to form the Baltimore County Union (Towson: 1865).

Issues of this newspaper are from the collection of the Enoch Pratt Free Library, deposited there by Mrs. Mary E. Wilson, owner of the Prince George's Enquirer until 1925. Additional issues were acquired from G. Frank Stricklin, publisher of the Jeffersonian.

Archives' collection includes issue for December 13, 1862 [MSA SC 1925-1-24].
