Excerpt from History of Nebraska From the Earliest Explorations of the Trans-Mississippi Region

Two or three statements may aid us in appreciation of history in general, and more particularly they may help to show the value, for all citizens, of local and state history. They will enable us to understand and to realize that he lives the best and most useful life, both for himself and for all with whom he is in any way connected, who lives in the present, who makes a wise use of all the past, and who provides as far as possible for the future.

This relation of past, present, and future points to the true meaning of history and helps us to determine its real significance. It suggests the most Significant thing in the study of history, whether it relates to a community, to a state, to a nation, or to the world. This is the case whether history is one of the means of mental growth and intelligence and a source of enrichment of life, as in the case of a student, or from the standpoint of the busy man or woman who has time for only a few pages in a week. This meaning and significance may be expressed thus: We study history that we may know how the present came to be - how the present came out of the past - what the relation of the present is to the past, and, then, by a wise use of the knowledge we gain and the strength we acquire we may prepare for the future. This is the practical, everyday Side of the knowledge of history. From this point of view history has a meaning and a significance which are beyond our ability to measure.
