Many parts of this work are copied from the original accounts in order to obtain the truth historians seek as their aim. "This work may be considered as a collection of historical facts, items, and antiquities, relating to the history of the northern States." The compiler, as a historian, feels that "By the contemplation of the past, we feel our span of existence extended, and in a measure enter into the feelings of those who have gone before us. By tracing the history of man, in the varied situations in which he has been placed, and by observing the effect of principles by which he has been actuated, we feel interested and instructed."

John Warner Barber
