Excerpt

In many previous volumes of the series, the region beyond the Alleghanies has been recognized as an influence and a potentiality in American history. Thwaites, in his France in America, shows how the French opened up the country and prepared the way; the Tennessee and Kentucky settlements are described in Howard Preliminaries of the Revolution; Van Tyne American Revolution goes into the earliest western governments; McLaughlin Confederation and Constitution deals with the organization of the new communities by Congress; Bassett Federalist System and Channing's Jeffersonian System show how the diplomacy and politics of the country were affected by the appearance of a new group of equal states; while Babcock Rise of American Nationality carries the influence of those states into a broader national life. Professor Turner takes up the west as an integral part of the Union, with a self-consciousness as lively as that of the east or south, with its own aims and prejudices, but a partner in the councils and the benefits of the national government which, as a whole, it is the aim of this volume to describe.
