Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The purpose of this early American history volume is to give a summary of what is known of American Antiquities, with some thoughts and suggestions relative to their significance. It aims at nothing more. No similar work, I believe, has been published in English or in any other language. What is known of American Archeology is recorded in a great many volumes, English, French, Spanish, and German, each work being confined to some particular department of the subject, or containing only an intelligent traveler s brief sketches of what he saw as he went through some of the districts where the old ruins are found.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Illustrated. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.John Denison Baldwin (September 28, 1809 - July 8, 1883) was an American politician, Congregationalist minister, newspaper editor, and popular anthropological writer. He was a member of the Connecticut State House of Representatives and later a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Massachusetts. Biography: Baldwin briefly studied law, but graduated with a degree in theology from Yale Divinity School in 1834. He became a Congregationalist minister and preached in West Woodstock, North Branford, and North Killingly, all in Connecticut. In 1839 Yale awarded him an honorary Master of Arts degree. He became a member of the Connecticut State House of Representatives in 1847. Baldwin was active in the Free Soil and anti-slavery movements. He edited anti-slavery journals the Republican (published in Hartford) and the Commonwealth (published in Boston), and from 1859 became the owner and editor of the Worcester Spy, what George Frisbie Hoar called one of the most influential papers in New England. From this time onwards Baldwin was resident in Worcester, Massachusetts. He was a delegate to the 1860 Republican National Convention, where Abraham Lincoln was nominated as Republican presidential candidate, and in 1863 he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives for Massachusetts s 8th congressional district. A close friend of both Charles Sumner and Henry Wilson, Senators from Massachusetts, Baldwin served for three terms in the House, promoting full equal rights for black Americans in the wake of the Civil War. In 1869, when George F. Hoar was nominated as the Republican candidate for his seat, Baldwin returned full-time to his journalistic and anthropological work. He edited the Worcester Spy until his death in 1883. In 1867 Baldwin was elected a member of the American Antiquarian Society. Anthropological writings and beliefs: Baldwin conducted correspondence with many notable thinkers of his time, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Charles Darwin, James Russell Lowell, and particularly his friend Charles Sumner. He accepted Darwin s theory of evolution while maintaining a belief in the divine origin of first forms. In 1865 he was elected a corporate member of the American Oriental Society. Baldwin s anthropological writing posited the origins of human civilization as arising among an Arabian or Northeast African people, the Cushites, in pre-historic times. In Ancient America, In Notes on American Archaeology he also speculated on the origins of the Mound Builder people then believed to have constructed the famous mounds around the Mississippi and Ohio River Valleys, suggesting that they had been an aboriginal people who had migrated northwards from Central America or Mexico. He rejected the then-common notion that they had been a lost European, Semitic, or Asiatic people who had been wiped out by the North American Indians, asserting on the contrary that the Mounds were wholly original, wholly American and did not come from the Old World. He did, however, still subscribe to the idea that these Mound Builders were not the same as the American Indian inhabitants of the region at that time, who he believed were a separate race originating in Asia.
