The Lynchburg Sentinel, as far as I know was a Local Newspaper in Lynchburg ,Tennessee. I have 62 pdf of different edition of The Lynchburg Sentinel. The Lynchburg Sentinel was established on April 3,1874 http://www.tennessee...-newspapers.htm. The 1st edition I have started on June 5,1874 and the last issue I have is July 23,1913. Of course ,I am missing some issue. Not sure when The Lynchburg Sentinel stopped their press.
Brad Call brought to my attention a particular issue. That issue is March 23,1877. In this issue you will find some changes to History, that you did not know of before.
You will find that the Lincoln County Process is much older than Nearest Green.
You will also find that as of 1877, even though Jack Daniel registered The Distillery as The Jack Daniel's Distillery in 1866, it was still Daniel & Call Distillery in 1877.
You will also find out there was Sweet Mash Whiskey, something I must admit never heard of.
And one more thing, in this article and you will need to think this thru, it may show you the answer to an aged old question, "Why did Jack Daniel put "Old No7 Brand" on his product?
Brad and I discussed all of this and it made perfect sense. But I am not going to give you the answer right away if you do not find them. Actually I will wait a while until Brad signs on and let him tell you.
So here is what to do, open the pdf titled Lynchburg Sentinel Mar_23_1877. Once you have it open, go to the 3rd page, 2nd column titled "The Sour Mash Distillers". It is best to enlarge the pdf until it will get no larger in order to be able to clearly read
