Edward Eggleston wrote this little book in 1895, and our second graders love it. We thought we would publish it so everyone could enjoy it! We have included Eggleston’s original illustrations and added some additional ones as well. Eggleston says in his preface that “the primary aim of this book is to furnish the little learner reading matter that will excite his attention and give him pleasure” and “to make the mind of the pupil familiar with some of the leading figures in the history of our country by means of personal anecdote.” Students will be introduced to Washington, Franklin, Audubon, and more.
