Lincolns Censor examines the effect of government suppression on the Democratic press in Indiana during the spring of 1863. Indianas Democratic newspaper editors were subject to Milo S. Hascalls General Order Number Nine, which proclaimed that all newspaper editors and public speakers that encouraged resistance to the draft or any other war measure would be treated as traitors. Brigadier General Hascall, commander of the District of Indiana, was amplifying General Order Number Thirty-eight of Major General Ambrose Everts Burnside, the commander of the Department of the Ohio.

Burnsides order declared that criticism of the president and the war effort was tantamount to declaring sympathies with the enemy. Eleven Democratic newspapers in Indiana faced suspension.
