1 he Greatest American Histor.
irn Dies Suddenly at His
Throne iu Washington.
Washikctos, Jan. 19. This commu
nity was greatly shocked by tu news
Lhat George Bancroft, the venerable
historian was dead. He had been in
ipparently better health this year since
aia return from Newport than for sev
sral seasons pat t, so that bis death was
sudden and unexpected to all save a lew
intimate friends who knew of the at
tack of illness which carried him off.
Qis death occurred at 3:40 o'clock Sat
fGoorge Bancroft, Ph. D-, L. L. D., D.
a. lu, was born at Wjrsester, Mass., Oc
tober 3, 1800, entered Harvard college
in 1SI3, graduated in 1817. Almost im
mediately afterwaids he went abroad,
here ha remained for five years. He
received the degree of Pb. D. at Gottio
gen in 1820, and returning to America
io 1822, was for a year Greek tutor in
Harvard college. In 1823 he founded
the Round Hill school at Northhampton,
Mass. The same year he published a
volume of poems, and in 1824 a transla
tion of Heeren's -"Politics of Ancient
3reeee." He was also at this time med
itating and collecting materials for his
History of the United States," the first
volume of which appeared in 1834- In
1835 he removed to Springfield, Maes.,
where he resided tor three years, and
ximp'eted the second volume af his his
tory. In 1838 he was appointed collect
ar of the port of Boston, a position

Briain. During his residence in Europe
he made use of every opportunity V
perfect his collections of documents re
lating to American history. He re
turned to the United States in 1819,
took up his residence in New York and
set about the preparation of the re
mainder of his history, of which the
tenth volume was published in
1873. This brings the narrative to
the close of the revolutionary war, and
completes the body of the work. Two
supplementary volumes were issued in
1S32 under the title of "History of th.
foundation of the Constitution of the
United states," which brings the nar
rative down to 1837. In February 18GG,

a volume of Miscellanies," comprising a
portion of the articles which he bad
contributed to the North American Re
view. In 1883 the first vol u me of a care
fully revised edition cf bis history was
published, of which the sixth and con
cluding one appeared in 1885. His lat
est publication is "A Plea for the Con
stitution of the United States Wound
