INTRODUCTION.

We present in this volume a collection of the most important facts in American historyjust the facts that every intelligent citizen desires to have at ready command. As a fitting introduction to it we give a brief memoir of the “Father of his Country,” “first in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen,” the immortal Washington; using that as a kind of thread on which to string some facts and thoughts that tend to show the magnitude and magnificence of the wondrous revolution in the politics of the world, of which, what we call the American Revolution was the centre, and George Washington the most conspicuous figure.
