The American Navy

The American Navy

French Ensor Chadwick | History
Rating:     Rated: 0 times
Format: PDF, ePub, Kindle, TXT

The navy in all countries has ever been, and, as far as we can now judge, ever will be, a preëminent instrument of government. It was through her navy that Greece destroyed the power of Persia; Rome that of Carthage; the allies at Lepanto that of the Turks; England that of Holland and later that...

Life of Her Majesty Queen Victoria

Dame Millicent Garrett Fawcett | History
Rating:     Rated: 0 times
Format: PDF, ePub, Kindle, TXT

It would have been impossible, within the limits of this little book, to narrate, even in barest outline, all the events of the Queen’s long life and reign. In attempting to deal with so large a subject in so short a space, I have therefore thought it best to dwell on what may be considered the...

The Druidess: A Story for Boys and Others

Florence Gay | History
Rating:     Rated: 0 times
Format: PDF, ePub, Kindle, TXT

As this story touches upon history to a certain extent, perhaps too much licence has been taken with Ethelbert’s movements in bringing him as far west as the Severn Valley. The union between the Britons and Saxons was suggested by the historical league formed between the Britons and those Saxons...

Peru: A land of contrast

Peru: A land of contrast

Millicent Todd Bingham | History
Rating:     Rated: 0 times
Format: PDF, ePub, Kindle, TXT

Any statement regarding Peru implies a contrary statement equally valid. Contrast is its characteristic quality, true as to the general aspects of the country and ramifying through remote details. It is the obvious point of view from which to study Peru.
