Excerpt from A Herald of the West: An American Story of 1811-1815In this historical romance the hero, who tells his own tale, is supposed to speak with the feeling of a Western American of his time, and not with the colder and more critical judgmentMoreExcerpt from A Herald of the West: An American Story of 1811-1815In this historical romance the hero, who tells his own tale, is supposed to speak with the feeling of a Western American of his time, and not with the colder and more critical judgment of a later day.

His attitude toward Europe, and particularly toward Great Britain, is caused by the events of the War of 1812 and of the years immediately preceding it, when the death struggle of Britain and Bonaparte drew the whole civilized world into war, including the United States, distant and detached though the latter was from the European system.

It is admitted by all historians that the rights of weak neutrals, such as the United States then was, received no respect from either of the great contending powers, and the author believes that we had more cause to complain of Great Britain than of France, because Great Britain had more ability, and not more willingness, to do us harm.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
