This stupendous subject the author has treated with her now well-known grasp and power. Pestilence-stricken Ascalon; Jerusalem in its dire plight between warring factions within and the besieging force of Romans without; the emotional conflict between old Israelitish beliefs and the new Christianity; a sense of thronging multitudinous life, of Jew and Persian and Roman, Pagan and Christian, soldier and lord; the canvas is vast and the colors dramatic.

    Available: Epub 45 Downloads
    In his will George Washington bequeathed to his favorite nephew, Bushrod Washington, his personal letters, private papers and secret documents accumulated during a lifetime of service to his country. When the bequest became known, many of the literary men of the country were proposed for the commission to write the authorized life of our First President.Bushrod Washington's choice fell upon John Marshall, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. To him he handed over all the precious papers left him by his distinguished relative. George Washington and Marshall's father, Thomas Marshall, were boyhood companions, so John Marshall knew "the Father of His Country" as a neighbor and friend from his earliest youth, and served under him in the Revolution.
