Excerpt from Founders and Builders of Our Nation

"History is a continued story, each chapter of which tells the story of some mans work for his country." The twenty-six stories of great Americans which make up Founders And Builders Of Our Nation are thus the continued story of our country, and are intended to serve as an introduction to American History.

The Report of the Committee of Eight says: "In Grades IV and V the biographical element should receive emphasis. Leaders, heroes, and patriots should be identified with great movements and important situations. But in every case the share of the leader should be made the strong feature; for in that way historic truth makes its strongest appeal to the young."

That the men and women whose stories are told here are the outstanding leaders is ensured by the method of their selection. The list of names was compiled by ascertaining the choice of a large number of educators, each naming the Americans he considered had done most for their country.

While the arrangement is in the main chronological, these great Americans have been grouped according to the nature of their contribution to the nation. For example, Jefferson is not placed among the leaders of the Revolution, but with Clark and Jackson, in order to emphasize his part in enlarging the territory. The Introductions to these groups are planned to interpret the arrangement and to connect these divisions. The teacher should go over these with the class before assigning them as lessons.

The Topics for Review and Search given after each story are planned to make the pupils think over what they have already learned, and usually to do some simple research work.
