"In the selection of subjects for a biographical series of works for youth, the editor has been led ... to prefer those which belong to our own country. ... It is more particularly necessary, that our youth should be made acquainted with the lives of those men who were associated with the history of their native land ... In the presentation of the work, the author has sought to adapt it to youth, by the use of a simple style, and by the introduction of many illustrative tales, sketches, anecdotes and adventures. Questions for examining the pupils are printed in the pages, which may be used, or not, at the choice of the teacher. The Life of Washington, and the Life of Franklin, on a plan similar to this, are nearly completed, and other volumes containing the lives of celebrated Indian chiefs, celebrated American statesmen, &c. will be published hereafter, if those already in progress should meet with success."--Preface, p. [v]-vi. Includes questions for study.
