A strong foundation in history with a vision for the future

A challenge to LDN readers

[AUG. 19, 2000]  In the first decades of the 19th century, Europeans were intrigued with America—this peculiar new nation, this loose collection of states, this wedge of soil between the blue Atlantic and the great western wilderness, this polity of rabble, this kingless land of no particular religion, this robust, untethered marketplace. So, curious Europeans did what Europeans do best; they traveled to our shores, observed our odd ways, returned to their homelands and entertained their countrymen with their tales.
