The Night Before Christmas

Clement Clarke Moore's Night before Christmas, or The visit of Saint Nicholas, was first printed in the Troy Sentinel Dec. 23, 1823. Later it was used in pamphlet form as a carriers' address, and occasionally as a broadside. The Library also has another Night Before Christmas web exhibit, which may be of interest.
