PREFACE.

OUT of the depths of his mature knowledge Carlyle wrote, "History is the essence of innumerable biographies." Believing this to be the very fact, there is not any necessity of advancing any longer reason behind the compilation of this type of paintings as this, if trustworthy historical past is to be the last word object.

The part of Ohio embraced through this quantity has sustained inside of its confines males who've been popular within the historical past of the country, or even the kingdom, for a century. The annals teem with the documents of robust and noble manhood, and, as Sumner has acknowledged, "the precise grandeur of countries is in these characteristics which represent the greatness of the individual." the ultimate factors which form the fortunes of people and the destinies of States are usually a similar. they're often distant and vague, and their effect scarcely perceived until eventually glaringly declared through effects. That state is the best which produces the best and such a lot manly males and devoted ladies; and the intrinsic protection of a group relies now not lots upon equipment as upon that ordinary improvement from the deep assets of which proceeds all that's valuable and perma-manent in existence. yet one of these end result won't consciously be reflected by way of the actors within the nice social drama.

AMERICA is the one state of the earth that has produced pioneers. ecu international locations have been peopled via males relocating' in huge our bodies from one position to a different. entire tribes might movement en masse and overrun, soak up or extinguish the unique population of a rustic, dispossess them and occupy their territory. yet in the United States we had the sluggish strategy of civilization and the slow recession of barbarism. The white guy didn't are available in columns and platoons, yet got here singly as pioneers.

When civilization crossed the crest of the Alleghanies, Ohio used to be appeared upon because the backyard of the west, and shortly a variety of settlements have been made within the territory referred to now because the kingdom of Ohio.
