Aunt Charlotte's Stories of Greek History
by Charlotte Mary Yonge
Publisher: Marcus Ward & co.
In this little book the attempt has been to trace Greek History so as to be intelligible to young children. In fact, it will generally be found that classical history is remembered at an earlier age than modern history, probably because the events are simple, and there was something childlike in the nature of all the ancient Greeks.

An absorbing book, describing the most dramatic episodes in colonial history: Peter Stuyvesant's flag, the struggle between Nathaniel Bacon and Sir William Berkeley, the attack on the Delaware, the pirates of Charles Town Harbor, and much more.
The text starts from the first Anglo-Saxon Kings of England, shows how the Crown changed many hands, it has battled Parliament, the period where the power finally transfered to Parliament through to the times of Elizabeth II.
