History of Indianapolis and Marion County, Indiana, Volume 2

History of Indianapolis and Marion County, Indiana, Volume 2 – Berry Robinson Sulgrove

In a history mainly composed of the incidents that indicate the growth of a community, and the direction and character of it, where few are important enough to require an extended narration, and the remainder afford little material, it is not easy to construct a continuous narrative, or to so connect the unrelated points as to prevent the work taking on the aspect of a pretentious directory. In this case, however, the author presents us an almost perfect history of the town of Indianapolis, including all townships, and Marion County, Indiana. This is volume two out of two.

History of Jacksonville, Florida and Vicinity, 1513 to 1924

History of Jacksonville, Florida and Vicinity, 1513 to 1924 – T. Frederick Davis

Two times there was a wholesale destruction of Jacksonville’s official records – in the War Between the States and by the fire of May 3, 1901. The author’s effort in this work was to collect all of the available authentic matter for permanent preservation in book form. The record closes as of December 31, 1924. The record is derived from many sources – long forgotten books and pamphlets; old letters and diaries that have been stored away as family memorials of the past; newspapers beginning with the St. Augustine Herald in 1822 (on file at the Congressional Library at Washington) fragmentary for the early years, but extremely … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...

History of Westchester County, New York, Volume 3 (Biographical)

History of Westchester County, New York, Volume 3 (Biographical) – Jürgen Beck (Hrsg.)

Long before this work, here in an edition containing three volumes, two of them of biographical nature, was first published, the authors cherished the hope that it could be a genuine narrative history of the county and wanted to be personally instrumental in achieving so important a result. Their attention was especially directed to the matter by their observations during their connection with the schools, from which they became convinced of the extremely elementary character of the general knowledge of this county’s history, even in relation to the Revolution, whereof, indeed, anything like a well-coordinated understanding is most exceptional among the people, and quite incapable of being … Read more.../Mehr lesen ...
