Excerpt from Curiosities in American History: The Green Mountain Boys; Or Vermont and the New York Land Jobbers
In the history of a country whose growth has been under circumstances like our own, every 10 cality abounds in unrecorded deeds of moral hero ism as worthy of notice as are many facts and events which have become fixed in the historic literature current among the masses. Even were such deeds to find a place in local history, they will necessarily be circumscribed in their inﬂu ence, and at best be so hidden among common place matter as almost to escape notice; while to attempt giving them the attention they deserve in a general history would be futile.
