Its object is to present clearly and accurately those facts and principles in the lives of some of the chief founders and builders of America which would be of interest and value to pupils beginning the study of our history.

Few text-books have met with such immediate recognition as this. It seems to be regarded by the best judges as, on the whole, the best school history of the United States yet published.
