Abstract:

"The new world promised a better life for pioneers and settlers coming from Europe. Most came willingly, some came as indentured servants, and some came as soldiers. With few exceptions, they were hoping for a better life in a place where they could own land and create a heritage for the generations to follow. These same families and colonists eventually gained independence creating a new nation. This is the story of one such family, moving westward from the shores of the Atlantic to the banks of the Mississippi. Their search for a good life included new beginnings, the industrialization of a nation, and a struggle to keep their country whole. They hoped to give each of their children the gift of heritage, pride, and family values."--Back cover
