For the purpose, then, Of presenting to such as may be interested, I have assembled here the most comprehensive account that has ever been Offered, and one that aims to be a history of the entire day. I have endeavored to make it not only complete and interesting, but just and reliable, recognizing fully the rights of my own ancestors to rebel, and also recognizing the rights Of the mother country to prevent such rebellion — even by an appeal to arms.
