Excerpt from The True Story of the United States of America: Told for Young People

The story of the United States of America has already been told and re-told for young Americans by competent writers, and yet there is room for another re-telling. To avoid as far as possible the dreary array of dates and the dull succession of events that may comprise the history hut do not tell the story - to awaken an interest in motives as well as persons, in principles rather than in battles, in the patriotism and manliness that make a people rather than in the simply personal qualities that make the leader or the individual, is the aim of the writer of this latest "Story." The future of the Republic depends on the upbringing of the boys and girls of to-day. Any new light on the doings of the boys and girls of America's past when they grew to manhood and womanhood should be of service to the boys and girls of America's to-day and to-morrow. The hope that this volume may help as such a light has inspired its author to write as concisely and as simply as he is able the story of the great Republic's origin, development, and growth, from the far-off days of Columbus the discoverer to the nobler times of Washington the defender and Lincoln the savior of America's liberties.

It has seemed advisable, in view of the chain of events that have made the close of the nineteenth century notable years in the history of the Republic, to bring this "True Story of the United States" as nearly as possible to date, and thus include the stirring episode of the war with Spain. This new material is here thankfully offered to those young Americans who have, by their approval and appreciation, made this book so gratifying a success. May they live to be old Americans, proud of their native land, worthy of it and loyal to it, as it takes position far in the van, among the great nations of the twentieth century.
