Excerpt from Stories From American History
The object of this little book is to interest children in the history of their country. No attempt is made to give a connected or consecutive record, but rather to relate a number of striking incidents and to arouse the desire for an acquaintance with the full story of the "greatest land on which the sun ever shone." Since the volume is intended for quite young pupils, the language is simple and direct, and it is believed that everything is told in a way that will not only interest and be understood, but will be instructive to the boys and girls not yet old enough to take up a regular course in the study of history.
The series consists of three books, of which the present is the first. The second book is "Epochs in American History," and the third, "Lives of the Presidents of the United States."
