The turbulent years from the American Revolution to the First World War saw not only the forming of a great nation, but gave special meaning for all time to the designation, "American". Men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln added much to that word, but so did thousands of our forebears, many long since forgotten. Ours is not a nation of a few great men, but of many who share the individualism, idealism, and determination that formed the nucleus of this country. In these pages you will meet a varied group of Americans -- the great, the near-great, the hero, the scoundrel, the obscure, such as: Timothy Murphy, Aaron Burr, Alexander Hamilton, Sam Colt, Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, Teddy Roosevelt, and others. All -- some by design, some by circumstance -- had their spirit tested in the forming of our great nation. The way they and so many others met that challenge gave meaning to the word "American". These are just a few of the men -- and their guns -- that made America great. The characters that march through this book were all real, more fascinating than any fiction.
