Excerpt from The Political, Social, and Literary History of Germany From the Commencement to the Present Day

Holy Empire like a Colossus, till the blasts of Moscow and the field of Waterloo robbed him of all his hangings, - yea, his leaves, - and left him bare to weather. Where has the struggle with papacy been more bravely fought? Where has the struggle of the burgher class, where that with the Corsican Sesostris been so graphically played out? For my own part I have been intensely interested, and hope that I have infused some portion of the interest I have felt in the pages I have written.

The object I have kept in view has been to give bold broad outlines of German history, and to supply in smaller type the fullest detail. Those who wish to gain at a glance a general idea may read the larger type; those who would pick up the crumbs may consult the smaller under the heading of Chief Events.
