A
 
Brief
 
History
 
of
 
the
 
United
 
States

BARNES‘S
 
ONE
TERM
 
HISTORY
 
PREFACE
 
The
 
experience
 
of
 
all
 
teachers
 
testifies
 
to
 
the
 
lamentable
 
deficiency
 
in
 
historical
 
knowledge
 
among
 
their
 
pupils;
 
not
 
that
 
children
 
dislike
 
the
 
incidents
 
and
 
events
 
of
 
history,
 
for,
 
indeed,
 
they
 
prefer
 
them
 
to
 
the
 
improbable
 
tales
 
which
 
now
 
form
 
the
 
 bulk
 
of
 
their
 
reading,
 
 but
 
 because
 
the
 
 books
 
are
 
“dry.”
 
Those
 
which
 
are
 
interesting
 
are
 
apt
 
to
 
 be
 
lengthy,
 
and
 
the
 
mind
 
consequently
 
 becomes
 
confused
 
 by
 
the
 
multitude
 
of
 
details,
 
while
 
the
 
 brief
 
ones
 
often
 
contain
 
merely
 
the
 
dry
 
 bones
 
of
 
fact,
 
uninviting
 
and
 
unreal.
 
An
 
attractive
 
 book
 
which
 
can
 
 be
 
mastered
 
in
 
a
 
single
 
term,
 
is
 
the
 
necessity
 
of
 
our
 
schools.
 
The
 
present
 
work
 
is
 
an
 
attempt
 
to
 
meet
 
this
 
want
 
in
 
American
 
histories.
 
In
 
its
 
preparation
 
there
 
has
 
 been
 
an
 
endeavor
 
to
 
develop
 
the
 
following
 
principles:
 
1.
 
To
 
precede
 
each
 
Epoch
 
 by
 
questions
 
and
 
a
 
map,
 
so
 
that
 
the
 
pupil
 
may
 
 become
 
familiar
 
with
 
the
 
location
 
of
 
the
 
places
 
named
 
in
 
the
 
history
 
he
 
is
 
about
 
to
 
study.
 
2.
 
To
 
select
 
only
 
the
 
most
 
important
 
events
 
for
 
the
 
 body
 
of
 
the
 
text,
 
and
 
then,
 
 by
 
foot
notes,
 
to
 
give
 
explanations,
 
illustrations,
 
minor
 
events,
 
anecdotes,
 
&c.
 
3.
 
To
 
classify
 
the
 
events
 
under
 
general
 
topics,
 
which
 
are
 
given
 
in
 
distinct
 
type
 
at
 
the
 
 beginning
 
of
 
each
 
paragraph;
 
thus
 
impressing
 
the
 
leading
 
idea
 
on
 
the
 
mind
 
of
 
the
 
pupil,
 
enabling
 
him
 
to
 
see
 
at
 
a
 
glance
 
the
 
prominent
 
points
 
of
 
the
 
lesson,
 
and
 
especially
 
adapting
 
the
 
 book
 
to
 
that
 
large
 
and
 
constantly
 
increasing
 
class
 
of
 
teachers,
 
who
 
require
 
topical
 
recitations.
 
4.
 
To
 
select,
 
in
 
the
 
description
 
of
 
each
 
 battle,
 
some
 
characteristic
 
in
 
which
 
it
 
differs
 
from
 
all
 
other
 
 battles—its
 
key
note,
 
 by
 
which
 
it
 
can
 
 be
 
recollected;
 
thus
 
not
 
only
 
preventing
 
a
 
sameness,
 
 but
 
giving
 
to
 
the
 
pupil
 
a
 
point
 
around
 
which
 
he
 
may
 
group
 
information
 
obtained
 
from
 
fuller
 
descriptions
 
and
 
larger
 
histories.
 
5.
 
To
 
give
 
only
 
leading
 
dates,
 
and,
 
as
 
far
 
as
 
possible,
 
to
 
associate
 
them
 
with
 
each
 
other,
 
and
 
thus
 
assist
 
the
 
memory
 
in
 
their
 
permanent
