The Burgoyne Herald was a major newspaper in the Confederation of North America in the twentieth century based in the capital city of Burgoyne. At some point in the 1960s the paper merged with the Burgoyne Times and by January 1971 was being published under the name Burgoyne Herald and Times.

Sobel quotes a speech by Howard Washburne of the Friends of Black Mexico that appeared in the 19 February 1916 issue of the Herald; he also quotes Washburne's last words from the 29 August 1929 issue of the Herald. Sobel quotes a vitavised speech by Douglas Watson after his elevation to Governor-General from the 12 May 1929 issue of the Herald.

Sobel quotes the Herald's reporter Charles Martin from the 17 July 1936 issue on the 1932 inaugural speech of Mexican President Alvin Silva in which Martin writes, "The voice was Silva's, but the words sounded suspiciously like those of El Jefe." Sobel also quotes capital correpondent, Jerome O'Brian, praising James Billington's moderation on racial issues in the 10 November 1948 issue, and Billington's fitness for the office of governor-general in the 23 April 1950 issue.
