The Man Without a Country, is an interesting short story. It was written during the middle of the Civil War in 1863 and tells the story of a young man, Philip Nolan, who in the early days of the 1800's in a moment of bravery and bravado, renounced the United States and all that was his country. Making good on his wish a judge ordered him to be passed from ship to ship, never setting his foot on United States soil again, and also never hearing the least bit of news from his country. For 56 years Nolan lived this way, early on, realizing the mistake of his youth and taking young sailors under his guidance and telling them to cherish the country which they have. He pines to be reunited with the United States but pride and acceptance of his wrong doing resigns himself to his punishment, secretly building a shrine to his country and in his own words, loved Her more than any other, but deserved Her less than any other. A very short read and an interesting twist. Would definitely recommend to young adults and adults alike just for its inspiration that it provides.

This is nothing but a jumbled mess. It appears that there was more interest in advertising google than reproducing the book.
