An abridged history of the United States, or the republic of America

Abridged history of the United States

Our purpose is to give the events of the history with clearness and accuracy; with such illustrations of time and place addressed to the eye, as shall secure their retention in the memory; and, at the same time, with such an order of arrangement, as will enable the mind to recall, at need, what it thus retains. T

his we regard as necessary, not only with respect to this particular study; but as rightly laying out the ground-pian of the Intellect, so far as the whole range of history is concerned. We have endeavoured to make the book convenient, — by side notes with dates, numbered paragraphs of suitable length reading classes, — and by questions on each paragraph, placed at the bottom of the page.

 These questions are so ., that youthful teachers may avail themselves of the author's long experience, to acquire a manner of questioning, which, while not obscure, will oblige the pupil to think, which will bring into relief prominent points. 

We have been desirous of cultivating memory, intellect, and taste. But much more anxious have we been to sow the seeds of virtue, by 

showing the good in such amiable lights, that tlie youthful heart shall kindle into desires of imitation. And we have been careful to give clear conceptions of those deeds, which are proper to imitate; while with regard to wrong actions, we have, as far as possible, given the result, rather than the detail.
