. . . but should have! If you could judge a book by its cover, you’d be right this time! This original 1889 school textbook was discovered in a rare book sale, and the reader was so touched by the patriotic spirit represented that he determined to reprint it. The stories are captivating enough to entice my teenagers, but I love to read them aloud to the whole family. Stories include: “Daughters of Liberty,” “Boston Tea Party,” “Paul Revere’s Ride,” “Origin of Yankee Doodle,” “History of Our Flag”, “Lydia Darrah Saves General Washington,” “Benjamin Franklin,” and many more. Illustrated with original lovely black-and white-drawings and photographs. Paperback, 150 pages.
We the People (Sequel to American History Stories)
This patriotic schoolbook was originally printed in 1890 to teach children about their tremendous American heritage. This volume begins where American History Stories You Never Read in School (on top) leaves off. Having successfully beaten the greatest Empire of his time, General George Washington is elected the first President of the new United States. Here we are given a rare glimpse into his noble character as President. We learn of the administration of the great Thomas Jefferson, his wise expansion of our borders and his love for his countrymen and his fiddle. We learn more of what the British were up to after the Revolution, and how we had to fight and beat them a second time in the War of 1812. Paperback, illustrated, 158 pages.
