Description
Antique illustrated book "The Pictorial History of the United States" by James D. McCabe, published in the 1890's.

This book is in great condition, some finger smudges and some ink is not complete, such as on the copyright page. I cannot tell what the last number is on the copyright year. A few minor tears and a small group of pages between the Presented and title page are completely separate from the spine, but all are there and in nice, clean condition.

This book covers the following:
An account of the mound builders; the American Indians; the discoveries and exploration of the Norsemen, Spaniards, English and French; The settlement of the New World; the gradual growth of the colonies; the French and Indian Wars; the struggle of the Revolution; the establishment of the American Republic; the second war with England; the Mexican War; the long period of peace; the history of the Great Civil War; the reconstruction of the Union; the centennial of our independence; including the administration of president Harrison.

Embellished with over 400 historical engravings and portraits.
