Excerpt from Annals of North America: Being a Concise Account of the Important Events in the United States, the British Provinces, and Mexico, From Their Discovery Down to the Present Time, (1492-1877)
The value of the history of America, and particularly that of the United States, as affording an epitome of the history of the development of the human race, is hardly yet realized by even the Americans themselves.
There has been so much to be done - a continent to be cleared and brought under cultivation; while the new methods of transportation and intercommunication the railroad, the telegraph, the steam. Printing-press, and the marvellous results of scientific methods for the investigation of phenomena, and their application to industry of every description, have so occupied attention, that the leisure to calmly review our history, as a whole, has been scarcely possible; and the desire to do so, had we the leisure, has hardly been excited. The new has seemed to swallow up the old, and to-morrow, rather than yesterday, or even to-day, has seemed to be all there was of interest or importance.
