History of the United States since the Civil War (5 volumes)

Oberholtzer, Ellis Paxson Go to Vol 1|Go to Vol 2|Go to Vol 3|Go to Vol 4
DDC: 973.8

Vol 5 was published in 1926 and is not in the public domain.
Contents: Vol 1 – 1865-68; Vol 2 – 1868-72; Vol 3 – 1972-78; Vol 4 -1878-88.
“The work seems to us, on the whole, to be of great value. Mr. Oberholtzer has an unerring vision for political chicanery. He is exceedingly incisive and succinct in his estimates without oeing prolix and pursuing mere literature. His enthusiasms are fresh, vibrant, interesting. Above all they make good history. No writer of his day has treated his period
more freshly, more surely, more keenly. It is the sort of history that makes the reader keenly anxious to peruse the coming volumes.” Boston Transcript

“The twelve years covered by this history . . . include the Spanish American war and its resulting problems, the period of vast business expansion and consolidation, the building of the Panama canal and Roosevelt’s campaign against the trusts. The personalities who stand out, beside the two presidents, are Mark Hanna, I. P. Morgan, John Hay, Andrew Carnegie, Bryan, Root and Taft. As Mr. Rhodes reaches this recent period in our history, his historical detachment is less easily maintained and his political bent more apparent.” Book Review Digest.

Volume 1 is “a convenient summary of the documentary and diplomatic history of the part played by the United States in the Great war.

Volume 2, which covers 1918-20, “completes the history of the United States in the World War. . . Interestingly written and includes many details not treated in other books; specially good on war work at home, rather inadequate on the work of our army and navy abroad. Chapters on the peace treaty and its rejection, sources are principally newspaper reports. Valuable for ready reference. Useful texts in appendix.” N.Y. State Library

“This study covers the history of the United States from the close of the Civil War to 1923. The primary emphasis is placed upon the events themselves, with so little discussion of personalities and policies that the narrative seems to deal largely with the externalities of history. . . The narrative is well proportioned and skillfully handled. It is withal a very useful book.” American Economic Review. Maps and bibliographies
