Excerpt from The History of the United States, Vol. 1: From Their Colonization to the End of the Twenty-Sixth
Having felt the liveliest interest in the present Government of the United States, almost from the time of its commencement in 1789, I began, some six or seven years since, to prepare materials for its political history. I thought that sufficient time had then elapsed to enable the world to decide on the competency of the American people to self-government, and on the merits of their confederate republic.
It could then be seen whether, in its relations with other States, its course was pacific, liberal, and just; and how' far it could bear the burdens and hazards of war, when honorable peace was no longer attainable. The same retrospect might show us the consequences of those political dissensions from which no free people are exempt; teach us whether, in the party struggles for ascendency, the public welfare is sometimes sacrificed or overlooked; whether, when such ascendency is once attained, individuals, as well of the minority as the majority, are still secure in their rights of conscience, of speech, of action, and of property.
