The strong interest which is evinced by individuals, to learn the early history of their own country, and the enthusiasm with which they peruse the bold achievements of their early defenders, renders the work before us a fair candidate for public favour. The astonishing advancement of our favoured country in population, wealth, arts, and arms, the space which she fills in the map of the world, and the moral influence which she will unavoidably exert among the nations, are sufficient inducements to the study of her history, and the firm attachment of her children. How far the compiler of this history has conduced to the attainment of these objects, and with what judgment the work is executed, is left with his readers to determine.
In relating the exploits of the American Navy on the Lakes, he has taken the liberty to introduce so much of the military operations in the immediate vicinity, as to elucidate the corresponding transactions of the former.
