Excerpt from History the United States: Written for the Chautauqua Reading Circles
The preparation of a history of the United States for the Chautauqua Literary and Scientific Circle has been a real pleasure. Of course the council understand, when they place as short a book as this in the hands of readers, that those readers will wish to refer to the more full studies which illustrate either the general subject or special details which will have interest to different persons in different localities. The master work of Mr. Bancroft, which brings the history of America down to the adoption of the Constitution, will be - or should be - within reach, in some public library, of each of our readers in America. The Popular History of the United States, edited under the masterly care of Mr. Sydney H. Gay, one of the first of American historians, brings the history down to the end of the Civil War. It is the work of many writers, of whom Mr. Gay is easily the chief, and it may be referred to as an authority of the first class. In each neighborhood local histories of value will be found; and it was one of not the least advantages of the series of centennial celebrations which covered the years from 1863 to 1883 that they called the attention of students in every part of the United States to the materials yet to be found for the proper understanding of the history of the country. Such local histories should be sought for by our readers wherever they are, and will make an agreeable accompaniment to the study of the general history which is now in their hands.
