  • The Story Of American History

    Albert F. Blaisdell, Ginn and Company

    language (Jazzybee Verlag, July 21, 2012)
    Some sort of a first book on American history is now quite generally used in schools as a preparation for the more intelligent study of a larger and more formal text-book in the higher grammar grades.For beginners, a mere compilation of facts is dry and unsatisfactory. Such books have now given place, for the most part, to those prepared on a more attractive and judicious plan. The real aim in a first book should be to interest boys and girls in the history of their country, and to encourage them to cultivate a taste for further study and reading.This book is intended for use in the earlier grammar grades and to be preliminary to the study of a more advanced work in the higher grades. The author has also kept in mind the fact that the school life of many children is brief, and that all their instruction in American history must come from a text-book of this kind.Contents:Preface.Chapter I.

    language (Didactic Press, Jan. 5, 2015)
    The author has not aimed to cover the whole range of our country's history. Of many noted men and important affairs no mention is made. Only the leading events of certain periods and the personal achievements of a few representative "makers of our country" are treated in any detail. The subject is approached through biographical sketches of a few of the more illustrious actors in our nation's history. Some prominence is given to exceptional deeds of valor, details of everyday living in olden times, dramatic episodes, and personal incident...

  • The Story of American History

    Albert Franklin Blaisdell, Christopher d'James

    (CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform, July 20, 2012)
    Revisionism and political correctness are the bane of the historian. This reprint of a public domain 1900 elementary school American history textbook represents an unfiltered turn-of-the-century view of our nation's history from Pre-Columbus to the Spanish American War. It's likely closer to a primary source than anything we have today that's been filtered through multiple committees each attempting to advance their own agendas. If at all, Blaisdell is only unintentionally biased and at the very least, his account is an accurate view of a single perspective as opposed to today's texts which purport to be patently objective tellings. Handier than the free PDFs on the web, this you can hold, bookmark, highlight and shelve. An inexpensive imperative for any history buff.
