Historical and Miscellaneous Questions free pdf Excerpt from Historical and Miscellaneous Questions: With Large Additions, Embracing the Elements of Mythology, Astronomy, Architecture, Heraldry, Etc- Etc Having for many years made use of "Mangnall's Questions" in the education of my own children, I was tempted to introduce them into my school- although they were not in general use, it being an expensive book, and at that time (seven years since) difficult to be obtained. I then discovered many deficiencies, which I had not before thought of, particularly in having no portion allotted to the history of the United States, so necessary in the education of all Americans- and too much space appropriated to the English Constitution, together with many sentences, the application of which are entirely local. These considerations have tempted me, feeling the value of the work in its original form, and being convinced that no book of the kind has ever been compiled so well calculated - to use the words of the author's preface - "to awaken a spirit of laudable curiosity in young minds," and satisfy that curiosity when awakened in a manner the most concise and clear- to rearrange the work, adapting it more particularly for the use of schools in this country, by adding what has been entirely omitted, and curtailing those portions which, from their diffuseness on matters not particularly interesting to young Americans, are unnecessary. I claim no merit for this effort, even should it prove successful, as the portions of American history I have added have been compiled from standard works - those of Prescott, Bancroft, and Wooster - simplified as much as possible, and arranged according to the plan pursued in the English work.
