Title: America And Her CommentatorsAuthor: Henry T. TuckermanPublisher: 1864, Charles Scribner NYEdition: first edition
"...The object of this work is twofold to present a general view of the traits and transitions of our country, as recorded at different periods and by writers of various nationalities; and to afford those desirous of authentic information in regard to the United States a guide to the sources thereof...The present seems a favorable time for a retrospective review; and the need of popular enlightenment, both at home and abroad, as to the past development and present condition of this Republic, is universally acknowledged.
