Many people read the newspapers online but they have to search for the news that they are looking for. The website is user friendly and very organized for a newspaper directory. The directory is sectioned off by different countries at the top of the page, such as Europe, American, the Americas, Asia, Africa, Oceania, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom. So if you are in Europe and looking for European news, all you have to do is click on Europe to get the European directory. Additionally, if you are in America and wanting to read the United Kingdom news, it is all right there in the newspaper directory. However, if you are interested in a local newspaper, once you click on your country, the directory will list specific states. Once you click on the state or area, the directory will show newspapers that are specific for that area or city.

Furthermore, if you want to look at the news for just a city that you are interested in, the directory makes it very easy to find the newspaper you are looking for. This newspaper directory is also handy because it is divided into the different news groups. Therefore, if you wanted to specifically look for CNN News, it is right there in its own directory on the front webpage. This news directory is very organized and in depth. You can see all the headlines from the top news groups right there on the Home page, without having to search all over the internet. Many people spend hours a day searching all over the internet for news and here is all the news in one directory. With finding all the newspapers you need or want in one newspaper directory, you will not have to go out and buy newspapers; not even your local newspaper. This will save on paper waste and save you money. You can search through newspapers from all over the world without touching one piece of paper or spending any money. However, it is not just news but the website also offers news channels, magazines, and RSS feeds for specific cities. You will not find a directory with so much news at one click anywhere else on the internet, and it is free!

During Abraham Lincoln's 1864 run for a second term as president, Andrew Johnson (1808-1875) was his vice-presidential running mate. At this time during the Civil War, Lincoln was an unpopular president and Andrew Johnson, a southern War Democrat and Governor of Tennessee, would give the Republican ticket broader appeal to the important border states. On the Democrat ticket opposing Lincoln and Johnson in the 1864 election were George B. McClellan (the former Union general) and his running mate, George Hunt Pendleton. Abraham Lincoln won the election, but it was not a landslide victory. Lincoln won 55 percent of the total popular vote to McClellan's 45 percent. Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural on March 4, 1865 was held on a miserable, windy, rainy, and muddy day in Washington, D.C. The inaugural ceremonies were planned to be held outside, but were moved inside to the Senate chamber because the weather was so bad. Vice President Hannibal Hamlin was retiring, and Tennessee Democrat Andrew Johnson would now be inaugurated as Abraham Lincoln's vice-president. The Senate chamber's 1800s ventilation system was poor and it could not handle the added moisture from the wet and soaked clothes of the people attending the ceremony.

The Senate chamber was muggy and sticky, it was a very uncomfortable place to be on this poor-weather inaugural day in Washington, D.C. Andrew Johnson had been suffering from typhoid fever and generally was in poor health, during the weeks before the inaugural. Johnson's travel to Washington, D.C. Nashville did not help his physical condition, and he didn't feel well shortly before the inauguration. He downed three glasses of "medicinal" whiskey before entering the uncomfortable Senate chamber. As Andrew Johnson walked into the Senate chamber he appeared to be unsteady, and he was leaning on Hannibal Hamlin's arm. Usually the vice-president's inaugural speech is a brief formality on inauguration day. It became obvious to all that the new vice-president was three sheets to the wind as he began his vice-presidential inauguration speech. The stewed Johnson rambled on and on, speaking for seventeen minutes instead of the expected seven. Hannibal Hamlin finally gave a tug on Johnson's coat-tail, and only then did Johnson end his alcohol-impaired inaugural speech. Andrew Johnson's sottish inauguration festivities and formalities were not yet complete. Johnson then gave the Bible a tipsy kiss. As the now freshly inaugurated vice-president, it was Johnson's job to swear-in the new senators. Vice President Andrew Johnson was too drunk and confused for this, so instead a Senate clerk performed swearing-in of the new senators. After the drunken Andrew Johnson had been inaugurated indoors as vice-president, the nasty weather began to clear and improve. Abraham Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address could now be given outside as was originally planned.
