Excerpt

The following pages make no pretension to original research. They are founded on the admirable monographs of Doctor Friedrich Kapp, for many years an honored member of the New York bar and now an active member of the Imperial Assembly of his native Germany. During his residence in the United States, Doctor Kapp made special studies in the history of the Germans in America, and especially of those whose names have passed into American history. The result was the lives of Steuben and Kalb, and the history of those unfortunate men whose blood was shed to gratify the avarice of their sovereign; one of the darkest chapters in the history of wicked rulers. From these sources I have drawn freely in preparing this new tribute to the history of my country.
