Ten Great Events in History - History for Youngsters compiled by James Johonnot. DEFENSE OF FREEDOM BY GREEK VALOR - CRUSADES AND THE CRUSADERS - DEFENSE OF FREEDOM IN ALPINE PASSES - BRUCE AND BANNOCKBURN - COLUMBUS AND THE NEW WORLD - DEFENSE OF FREEDOM ON DUTCH DIKES - THE INVINCIBLE ARMADA - FREEDOM'S VOYAGE TO AMERICA - PLASSEY; AND HOW AN EMPIRE WAS WON - LEXINGTON AND BUNKER HILL. Patriotism, or love of country, is one of the tests of nobility of character. No great man ever lived that was not a patriot in the highest and truest sense. From the earliest times, the sentiment of patriotism has been aroused in the hearts of men by the narrative of heroic deeds inspired by love of country and love of liberty. This truth furnishes the key to the arrangement and method of the present work. The ten epochs treated are those that have been potential in shaping subsequent events; and when men have struck blows for human liberty against odds and regardless of personal consequences. The simple narrative carries its own morals, and the most profitable work for the teacher will be to merely supplement the narrative so that the picture presented shall be all the more vivid. Moral reflections are wearisome and superfluous.show more
