HOLLAND PREPARES TO YIELD TO ALLIES

I was trying to find an article I recently read in the New York Times describing Holland's tax system. I searched the NYT for "Holland" and got 10,000 hits. On page three I find the following article:

HOLLAND PREPARES TO YIELD TO ALLIES
Holland, on the eve of her shipping being taken over by the United States and Great Britain, has given evidences of a readiness to make a voluntary agreement to that purpose, even agreeing that the ships shall be sent through the war zone.

I'm like, what the hell? Then I read the date:

March 17, 1918

Did you know you can search the ENTIRE New York Times?

There I was thinking "Goodness! How long has it been since I read the news? What has happened to NPR? They've always kept me inform..."

Then I read your question and started laughing. I did not know you search the entire NYT, I'm going to do some poking around.

It's too bad you can't sort by date. You have to go through page by page looking for dates, but there's some interesting stuff.
