Excerpt from History of American Politics (Non-Partisan): Embracing a History of the Federal Government and of Political Parties in the Colonies and United States From 1607 to the Present
The plan of the work is designed to simplify the story of our polit ical history, thus making clear and intelligent what is otherwise, to a large proportion of our citizens, a great mass of documents too exten sive for perusal.
Chapter I. Treats of local colonial politics, and closes with a plate that represents mechanically the nature of colonial governments in their individual capacity.
Chapter II. Sets forth the difference between the colonists and the parent country on national colonial politics, and presents those issues that ultimately drove the Americans into the war of independence. This chapter is followed by a plate that exhibits to the eye the lead ing features of the British government, and represents how, according to the English colonial system, the colonies were under the supreme power of Parliament.
Chapter III. Presents revolutionary politics, and is accompanied by a plate which shows the sovereign and independent condition of the thirteen colonies, and their lack of cooperation with the Continental Congress by any binding law.
