    1. Honestly, meh. This should be re-titled as "White Men who Served in War and/or Political Office." Not one mention of any person of color and the only time "she" was used as a pronoun was in reference to a goddamn boat. The history was interesting, sure, but the writing was bleh. I'm honestly glad that society has progressed so much as to make this book irrelevant; you can't write a book about "heroes" and only talk about white men in war and have it be considered a compelling, award-worthy tome. [...]

    2. This is a strange compilation. First it seems like it is essays about American heroes. But then it starts focusing on Civil War battles without regard for individuals. The lofty praise for confederate soldiers and leaders is no longer politically correct but does show the intense "reconciliation" mood at the time it was written.

    3. An excellent compilationImportant men and events in our history in brief. concisely recalled reminders of great heroism and terrible sacrifice. A must read for all U.S. history buffs.

    4. Except for the fame of the authors, there is nothing particularly unusual about this book. Published in 1895, it is a collection of 26 patriotic tales intended to edify pre-adolescent boys. Written as such, they are easy to read, short in length, high in drama, and colored in black and white - each one a description of a courageous deed, a desperate struggle, a noble self-sacrifice - something to inspire emulation. All of Teddy Roosevelt's are of martial ardor, are full of blood and glory; Lodge [...]

    5. Tales of American heroes, primarily great military heroes and their stories. I'm definitely putting this on my sons' to-read list, I think they'll like it more than I did. Roosevelt and Lodge paint pictures of famous men like Washington and Lincoln, but also tell of lesser known heroes. I loved the quote, "America will cease to be a great nation whenever her young men cease to possess energy, daring, and endurance, as well as the wish and the power to fight the nation's foes." One thing that sto [...]

    6. Beginning with the 1st President of the United States, George Washington and ending with the 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, Hero Tales from American History gives a summery history of a few great Americans. The histories were written more to inspire patriotism than to relay real fact; the book paints the traditional American heroes in blinding colors. The book is interspersed with patriotic and inspirational poems by poets that had never seen the field of battle or heard the boom of cannon. I [...]

    7. I liked this collection of stories about great men from America's early years but did feel like it was a little propaganda-y. Although there were no stories about women I don't want to judge it by today's standards because it wasn't written for today, it was written to inspire young men in the late 19th century to do great things, and I'm fine with that. Plus TR - I mean come on, how could I not enjoy it?

    8. I love this book. Several chapters nearly brought me to tears. Every school child should be made to read this book.

    9. Very interestingEasy read. Learned a lot about people who were hero's in American history. Many I hadn't heard of before. in
