PREFACE

This book has been written to furnish a brief yet adequate account of the history of Pennsylvania in a form which will commend itself to teachers and pupils.

It is believed that no event essential to a correct view of the history of the State has been omitted, and the effort has been made to present an impartial and truthful picture.

The author has, in general, followed the chronological order of events, believing that, on the whole, the progress and development of the State can in that way best be understood. A general knowledge of the history of the United States has been taken for granted, and only those facts which are directly connected with the history of Pennsylvania have been mentioned.

ALLEN C. THOMAS HAVERFORD, PENNSYLVANIA
