BeschreibungExcerpt from History of the American People
The aim of this book is to present the history of our country in a somewhat more elaborate form than is usually adopted in books of this class. An experience of eighteen years as a teacher of youth from eleven to twenty years of age has led the author to believe that the power of history is too frequently lost in an attempt to simplify it unduly. Reason has begun its vigorous work at the ages named, and its habit is to seek for the language of maturity rather than for that of childhood.
Another aim is to unfold and display the neglected history of many parts of our country.
In the preparation of the book, the archives of many States, old manuscripts, State and private libraries, have been carefully consulted. Nearly every book that historians recognize as an authority has been studied, and in cases of conflict the truth has been diligently sought for.
The fact is recognized that many fables or myths have crept into the sacred domain of history; but this has not been made a warrant for an indiscriminate rejection of the many truths that incredulity has attacked.
In the case of the disputed voyage of Vespucci, although involved in much doubt, the common decision of modern scholarship has been permitted to outweigh the ingenious theories of Varnhagen and Fiske.
In political matters even-handed justice has been invoked upon every question.
