An Illustrated History of our War
By Hon. II. B. Russell, Senator Proctor,
and Senator Thurston.
This magnificently-illustrated, lichly
filled, and scholarly volume gives a
complete and authentic history of the
Spanish-A'merican War from its begin
ning to its close. Its authors are three
widely-known men, Hou. Henry B. Rus
sell, the distinguished historian, lion.
Redficld Proctor, Senator from Vermont
and ex-Secretary of War, and Hon.
John M. Thurston, Senator from Ne
braska. The subject naturally divides itself
into two parts : I. How we got into the
war with Spain; and II. How we got
out of it and with what results.
This volume tells the whole story,
makes clear all the causes of action that
led up to and culminated in the conflict,
gives pen pictures of those who figured
in it, and relates many exciting inci
dents, brave deeds, and thrilling adven
tures connected with the struggle. The
mutteritigs of the distant war cloud, the
indignation and uprising of the whole,
people, North and South, when tho vet
erans of the Blue and tho veterans of
the Gray took their places side by side
behind ihe same flag, the departure of
fleets of powerful modern warships, Ihe
march of hostile armies, the strife and
carnage of battle on land and sea, the
deeds of valor and heroic sufferings of
our gallant soldiers and sailors in field
and hospital, all are portrayed with con
Every event is placed in chronological
order, and the fullest and most authoi
itative statistics are given. As might
be expected from the high positions
filled by its distinguished authors, the
war and navy departments and other
branches of the government extended
every possible aid to make this volume
not only a stai.dard and official history
of tho war, but the most complete, well
rounded, and elaborate record of the
struggle that will probnbly ever be
written. No three living American
writers could more fitly assume this re
sponsible task or produce a more hon
est, truthful, and impartial book. Their
entire familiarity with the political his
tory of the country, their fund of statis
tical iniformation, their independence
and fearlessness, all guarantee that this
work is one ot more than ordinary val
ue. It presents a deepei, broader,
more exhaustive exhibit of tho long train
of causes which culminated in the con
flict thau can be found in any other work.
It is the most ample, brilliant, ami read
able book that the war has called forth.
It is not only rieii in historical informa
tion, but as instructive in its method of
presentation as it is fascinating in nar
rative. It is, in our opinion, the only
book that rises to tho dignity of a real
history of the Spanish-American conflict.
It needs no bolter introduction to tho
eight- millions of American freemen
than the names of its three illustrious
The magnificent illustrations include
a series of seven superb steel-plate por
traits of President McKinley (from a
photograph approved by himself), Gen
eral Miles, Sliafler, and Merritt, and
Admirals Dewey, Sampson, and Schley.
It is worthy of note that those are the
only steel-plate portraits of these famous
men ever published. It also contains
colored and elaborate maps, showing in
great detail Cuba, the Philippines. Por
to Rico, the Hawaiian islands, etc.
There ate, besides a large number of
maps and diagrams inserted in the text
lo illustrate battles, campaigns, naval
operation etc. There is also ;!2 magni
ficent full-page illustrations. In the
preparaiion of these maps, steel-plates
and illustrations no expense or pains
have beeu spared to make them all that
art, skill and talent could produce. In
no other history of tho war can anything
even approaching them be found.
It is worth more than all other books
and manuals on this subject, for in none
of them nor in them all combined can
be found so much solid information as
this thoroughly standard high-class
book contains, which has, in addition,
many beautiful illustrations and the in
estimable value of being truthful. If
we speak warmly of this book, it is be
cause it is richly worth all the praise
that can bo bestowed upon it.
The book is sold only by agents, and
is published by the old and reliable firm
of A. D. Worihiiigton & Co., Hartford.

antee of the excellence of this first class
