Civilization and Barbarism free pdf Excerpt from Civilization and Barbarism: Illustrated by Especial Reference to Metacomet and the Extinction of His Race It was said by an Indian warrior who long since yielded with his tribe to destiny, "We have been driven back until we can retreat no farther. Our hatchets are broken- our bows are snapped- our fires are nearly extinguished- a little longer, and the white man will cease to oppress, for we shall have ceased to exist." This gloomy foreboding has well-nigh been realized. Not only have the tribes in New England, and Indians who once peopled the Hudson, Potomac, Susquehanna, Rappahannock and the valley of the Shenandoah, become extinct save only a shade of the original Red Man, met here and there, chiefly solitary, but even what were, within the memory of such as have approximated to three-score and ten, frontiers of white settlements, have been divested alike of primeval forests and of marks of the footsteps of the once proud lords of the domain. All which is left to tell that these lands were once inhabited by a people who for long centuries flourished in their primitive condition, are names of villages, streams, bays, lakes, valleys, and mountains- names retained as a matter of convenience rather than of choice. From the shores of Huron and Superior, from the tributary streams of the Missouri and Mississippi, and from every remote spot of their once cherished and thickly-settled homes or local hunting-grounds, they disappear, vanishing like vapor from the face of the earth. "Although," as said the eloquent Washington Irving, "worthy of an age of poetry, and fit subject for local story and thrilling romance, they have left scarcely any authentic traces for the page of history, but stalk like gigantic shadows in the dim twilight of tradition."
