The United States of America began in a savage wilderness, by scattered groups of English families, whose later migration - augmented by newer arrivals from Scotland, Ireland and Wales, and from many other parts of the world - absorbed not a little of the territory, the blood, and the culture of the Dutch, the French, and the Spanish, which they met in their paths towards the establishment of a great nation.

The story which follows, is a personal narrative of one such family through those three centuries: the life, environment and activities in peace and in war, of ten consecutive generations, father to son - which entirely constitute a continuous thread in that allimportant background, without which, the greater personages in our nation's history could not have played their glorious parts.
