|1913-1917||Jaunā Tēvija||Immigrant press||Jaunā Tēvija (The New Homeland) was an illustrated monthly for Latvian-Americans that was published by Andrejs J. Fūrmanis (Andrew J. Fuhrman) beginning in September 1913. The journal was religious (Baptist) and nationalist in tone. Its editorial office originally was at 787 North Preston St., Philadelphia, but as of the October 1915 issue it moved to Bradley Beach, N.J.
Until February 1916, the cover of the magazine featured a stylized "Jaunā Tēvija" title floating above an image of the Statue of Liberty shining a beam of light from its torch onto a passenger ship named "Baltija" as it steams toward a dock, where a standing Uncle Sam waits with outstretched arms. With the February 1916 issue (which also saw a change from the glossy covers of earlier issues), a stylized title remained, but now it floated above a pair of images drawn by Gustavs Aboltiņš. In one, on the left side of the cover, the sun rises on what can be assumed to be a scene in Latvia, while on the right side a young woman reads Jaunā Tēvija.
