The Philadelphia Aurora was published six days a week in Philadelphia from 1794 to 1824. The paper was founded by Benjamin Franklin Bache, who served as editor until his death in 1798. It is sometimes referred to as the Aurora General Advertiser.[1][2]

William Duane is also said to have founded the paper.

The Aurora's articles generally denounced Federalists, including vitriolic attacks on the presidential administrations of George Washington and John Adams.
