V FOREWORD Although the present historical chronicle of the U. S. A. makes its appear ance as a companion-book to this authors The Southern Americas, and generally follows the method developed in the earlier book of alternating excerpts selected from diaries, letters and other original sources with the author-editors own commentary which is printed in oblique type, there are differences in purpose as well as technique that are perhaps worth noting. First and foremost, the earlier volume dealt with a more or less alien society and culture as far as the North American reader is concerned, and consequently the attention to factual material within the basic frame work of interpretation was necessarily much greater than in the present chronicle, which deals with an historical development whose broad out lines are more or less familiar to the reader. For pretty much the same reason, it was possible and felt to be desirable to employ a more infor mal tone at times a colloquial and even intimate one in tracing this panoramic narrative of American discovery and change for the reader in any one of the forty-eight states. Hence, for example, the more than occa sional use of the collective pronoun we in appraising people and events and the significance behind both. Most important of all, in fact, is the intention throughout of bringing the underlying meanings rather than the personalities or the episodesinto the first plane of relief. In other words, although the presentation of both personalities and episodes as fresh sources as well as good and even exciting reading has been one of the author-editors, first concerns, his principal care has been to tell the dramatic story of the metamorphosis of this continent and its settlers and pioneers into a nation and a people not only for the sake of the story itself but also because of whatever new X FOREWORD light the narrative might throw on the American peoples evolving sense of values. If the emphasis in the text appears to be on past incident, the interpretation throughout the book is purposely conceived in the light of present and future values, social as well as cultural. For aid and encouragement in the preparation and writing of this book I am indebted chiefly to my wife, Doris Troutman Plenn, whose confi dence in its progress remained firm under trying circumstances, and whose criticism and suggestions were as helpful as they were generous. I am also grateful for her permission to include certain materials such as the Onondaga chieftains account of the founding of the Iroquois peace league, and the quotation from colonial Governor Dunmores statement of the American character that were discovered in the course of research undertaken with her more than a decade ago, some of which were em bodied in a joint dramatic work entitled U. S. Odyssey. I am indebted, further, to the New York Public Library, among others, for its courtesy in extending to me the use of the American History room, the Reserve Collection, map room, typewriting room, and other facilities during the preparation of this volume, and to the publishers and others mentionedbelow for their cooperation in allowing me to reprint copyrighted material used in the body of this book.
