Excerpt from History of the United States The chief aim of the author in compiling this book is to awaken an abiding interest in the history of our country. To this end the narrative style, grouping facts together with direct reference to cause and effect, has been adopted. Chronology, the dread of the average young student, has been arranged in marginal notes, thus presenting a more than usually complete list of dates without detracting from the sustained recital. Maps of the scenes of action and portraits of the personages who have played their part in the wondrous human drama enacted in the Western Hemisphere have been selected with the utmost care; the bibliography suggested in the footnotes and appendix is such as any school can afford to secure; the Table of Contemporary European Sovereigns and that of the Admission of the States to the Union will be found invaluable for reference, while the full page colored maps of territorial readjustments will render the study of treaties and purchases a more pleasing and profitable task. The object for which this little history has been written will have been attained if its pages incite to further quest - not only in the exhaustive works to be found on the shelves of the library, but in newspapers and magazines, in the utterances from the public platforms, and quiet talks around the fireside at home - of those great underlying principles of self-government which have made our republic the pride and glory of the century fast drawing to a close.
