Its story may yet be told from the beginning, and may hold for its children of to-day the freshness and reality of a few yesterdays ago. It is not difficult for the mind to compass the whole history of our wonderful nation and to bring distinctly and vividly to view the small beginnings. the sure growth, the gathering tide of events which made of the American Colonies one of the great world powers. Yet the onward march has been so swift, the planting and rearing and maintaining has been so earnest and so eager, great men and brilliant leaders have come so swiftly upon the scene, that we have often been in danger of letting slip into forgetfulness the quieter work and the humbler lives, without which the solid foundations could never have been laid. It is only as we feel ourselves a part of a great and noble whole that its purposes and fortunes become more precious to us: and if our own fathers wrought, however obscurely, in the building of a noble structure, it becomes an especial delight to preserve the record and to hand it on to those who may come after us.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
