Excerpt from Youth's History of the United States, Designed for Intermediate Classes in Public and Private Schools
1st. It is arranged in the catechetical form, and contains all the important facts of American History, systematized in such a manner that the pupil advances with profit and pleasure.
2d. Maps, with special reference to the matter, are introduced, with geographical exercises, affording the learner a knowledge of the localities of battle-grounds, forts, &c., mentioned in history.
3d. The Review of each year, or period, will be found very serviceable in rendering more impressive the parts over which the learner has just passed. A valuable feature here is, that the questions in the Review are not only varied in form, but the questions and answers of the preceding exercises are reversed in the Review: - thus, in the exercises - "In what year was America discovered? Ans.1492." The Review Question would be, - "For what is the year 1492 memorable?"
4th. As beginners are so often perplexed and discouraged in their efforts to commit to memory the dates, these are inclosed in parentheses; so that they may be omitted until the learner has acquired a thorough knowledge of the events.
5th. The book contains Biographical Sketches of all persons who have been prominently identified with the history of our country. The importance of this addition to a history is very apparent.
Throughout the preparation of this work, the most reliable and popular authorities have been consulted.
