Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788421689, CD-ROM)Now on CD-ROM! According to the English historian, Macauley, "the history of a country is best told in a record of the lives of its people." "In this volume will be found a record of many whose lives are worthy the imitation of coming generations. It tells how some, commencing life in poverty, by industry and economy, have accumulated wealth. It tells how others, with limited advantages for securing an education, have become learned men and women, with an influence extending throughout the length and breadth of the land. It tells of men who have risen from the lower walks of life to eminence as statesmen, and whose names have become famous. It tells of those in every walk in life who have striven to succeed, and records how that success has usually crowned their efforts. It tells how...many...left every trade and profession...and...went forth valiantly 'to do or die,' and how through their efforts the Union was restored and peace once more reigned in the land." These personal histories as told to the writers of this volume often include a portrait of the subject. A fullname index provides easy access to the researcher.
