Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Filibusters and Financiers: The Story of William Walker and His Associates In making acknowledgment to those who have assisted him in the preparation of this work the author feels that he is indebted most of all to two of his former instructors, Professor George Petrie, of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute, and Pro fossor Albert Bushnell Hart, of Harvard University. Professor Petrie first aroused his interest in the filibustering movement and directed his earliest investigations, and Professor Hart trained and aided him in his further research. Professor Andrew C. Mclaughlin, while Director of the Bureau of His torical Research of the Carnegie Institution, aided him very materially in the investigation of manuscript sources in the archives of the State and Navy departments at Washington. Others who have been of much assistance in giving advice or furnishing materials are Professor St. George L. Sioussat, of Vanderbilt University; Lieutenant Campbell B. Hodges, of the United States Army; and Mr. Antonio Guell, of the Louisiana State University, a nephew of two of Walker s greatest oppo nenta, President Mora and General Canas of Costa Rica. To General John mcgrath, of Baton Rouge, La., a veteran of Walker s first Nicaraguan expedition, the author is indebted for the courtesy of a number of pleasant interviews, which have given him a clearer insight into the motives and aspira tions of the adventurers in Central America. He is also greatly obligated to Mr. Robert Lusk, of Nashville, Tenn., for the loan of a scrapbook compiled by Major John P. Heiss, one of Walker s friends and supporters. The author also desires to return acknowledgment of the many courtesies ex tended to him by officials in charge of the archives of the State and Navy departments and by the staff in the reading room of the Library of Congress. To his colleagues, Professors Walter L. Fleming and Milledge L. Bonham, Jr., who have kindly read the manuscript and offered many valuable eriti cisms, he feels especially indebted.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 430 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.Excerpt from Filibusters and Financiers: The Story of William Walker and His AssociatesWhen the writer of these pages first began to study the filibustering activities of William Walker and his associates, he did so with no intention of producing a book. As he continued his investigations, however, he became convinced that this subject deserved more attention from the historian than it had yet received, and he therefore determined to write the full story of those filibustering movements which are so closely interwoven with the life of William Walker, and at the same time to give the events thus narrated their proper setting in the whole field of American history. The accounts of Walkers various enterprises appearing in general works on American history are always meagre, and in many cases are actually misleading. The usual explanations of his motives are much too simple. The forces underlying filibusterism were in fact exceedingly varied and complex, and to describe them requires the telling of a long but interesting story. The part played in Walkers career and in Central American politics by American financiers and captains of industry; the designs of Walker upon Cuba; his utter repudiation of the annexation of his conquests to the United States; the appeals of Central American governments to the leading European powers for deliverance from the filibusters; the thinly veiled machinations of Great Britain, Spain, and France against the American adventurers - these are some of the facts, hitherto overlooked or ignored, which it is here sought to set forth in their true light. Some of the results of this investigation have already appeared in print. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
