Overview

Hero Tales of American History, was written by close friends, legendary President Theodore Roosevelt and Congressman Henry Cabot Lodge. They retell the stories about Great American Heroes from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War. First published in 1895 these stories are vivid retellings of forgotten tales.

From the dedication: "Thrift, industry, obedience to law, and intellectual cultivation are essential qualities in the makeup of any successful people; but no people can be really great unless they possess also the heroic virtues which are as needful in time of peace as in time of war, and as important in civil as in military life. As a civilized people we desire peace, but the only peace worth having is obtained by instant readiness to fight when wronged—not by unwillingness or inability to fight at all. Intelligent foresight in preparation and known capacity to stand well in battle are the surest safeguards against war. America will cease to be a great nation whenever her young men cease to possess energy, daring, and endurance, as well as the wish and the power to fight the nation's foes."
