Interesting reading and interesting concept of relaying history by poems of different authors. I liked the small introductions to some of the poems. Otherwise there were 5 or 6 poems that stood out more than the others, and especially The Battle of Monmouth with Molly standing by her smoking gun.

James Brander Matthews was an American writer and educator. He was the first full-time professor of dramatic literature at an American university and played a significant role in establishing theater as a subject worthy of formal study in the academic world. His interests ranged from Shakespeare, Molière, and Ibsen to French boulevard comedies, folk theater, and the new realism of his own day.
