An Address (Classic Reprint) free pdf Excerpt from An Address Ladies and Gentlemen. We are assembled to-day to commemorate an event which, with its results, is the most important in the history of present civilized man, excepting only the Christian religion. The opening of so large a new world, now the center of wealth and prosperity, with all its varied experiences, makes its history much more practical, instructive and interesting to us than all the history of the old world. We are here to remember especially the event. If some other than Columbus had made the discovery we should still be here as now. Yet every, or nearly every, great event in the world's history, however, has its hero, and Columbus was a man of great qualities. All that can be known of his life and surroundings has been thoroughly studied, and I can tell you nothing you could not otherwise easily learn. His own writings were abundant. Irving first in Spain, and after Varnhagen of Germany, and Harrisse, of Paris, everywhere have exhaustively studied his life and times. In our own country that stupendous monument of learning, The Narrative and Critical History of America, edited by Mr. Justin Winsor, has largely and amply revealed him. This was preceeded by the full, careful, charming narrative of Irving and has been followed by Mr. Winsor's life of Columbus, a careful, broad and critical work, and later by Mr. John Fiske's Discovery of America - a model of learning and criticism, and there is just from the press selections of what is of most interest in the writings of Columbus, edited by Mr. Paul Leicester Ford. The life of none has been more studiously exhibited with such wealth of literary talent, of learning and of illustration in text and engraving. Columbus was born about the year 1436, in the city of Genoa. His father had been engaged in business and in tavern keeping near Genoa - ending his days in Genoa. Although the old gentleman died in debt he had a care in the education of his children, and Christopher had an education in Latin (then the language of general learning) and in navigation. It is said he was a student at the University at Pavia. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
