Biographical and Portrait Cyclopedia of the Nineteenth Congressional District, Pennsylvania free pdf Excerpt from Biographical and Portrait Cyclopedia of the Nineteenth Congressional District, Pennsylvania: Containing Biographical Sketches of Prominent and Representative Citizen of the District Together With an Introductory Histrical Sketch History and biography - the life of the nation and the story of the individual - are inseparably connected, for history is the synthesis of biography and biography is the analysis of history. That department of history to which is accredited most value for the intelligent study of national life is biography, because it affords the most potent means of historical generalization. Biographical history is now popular because important. It secured national recognition in the Centennial year of the American Republic, when Congress recommended to every city, town and county of the United States the necessity and duty of securing for preservation and future use their local history and the biographies of their prominent and worthy citizens. Biography teaches the highest good by presenting worthy examples, has become an indispensable element of all branches of history and largely aids in the study of social philosophy. In its earlier stages of growth, biography was only the story of the lives of heroes and great men often but partly and partially told, but in its later development it is the more impartial and satisfactory record of the influential, the deserving and the useful men and women in every walk of life. It also preserves the names of thousands remarkable for wisdom, virtue, intelligence and ability, who only lacked opportunity to have won something of fame and distinction. History and biography have ceased to be ponderous and pompous- have ceased to be the story of monarchy and the record of kings, and are now the life of the nation through the chronicle of individual effort. The old idea that the history of a country is contained in the records of its kings and conquests is being supplanted- the real history of a country or a State or a community is a history of its people, their fortunes, enterprises, conditions and customs. To the last quarter of a century we are indebted for the introduction of the admirable system of local biography, through the medium of which the present generation is enabled to leave a record that will be perpetuated while books last and men read. Surely and rapidly our common progenitors are passing to their graves. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
