Colonialism and Puritanism(1500 1775) In Honour of that High and Mighty Princess, Queen Elizabeth - Another by Anne Bradstreet Here lies the pride of Queens, pattern of Kings: So blaze it fame, here's feathers for thy wings. Here lies the envy'd, yet unparallel'd Prince, Whose living virtues speak (though dead long since). If many worlds, as that fantastic framed, In every one, be her great glory famed. Mrs. George Watson 1765 John Singleton Copley 3. Early Nationalism and Romanticism(c. 1801 1860) To A Skylark By William Wordsworth UP with me! up with me into the clouds! For thy song, Lark, is strong; Up with me, up with me into the clouds! Singing, singing, With clouds and sky about thee ringing, Lift me, guide me till I find That spot which seems so to thy mind!The Great Horseshoe Fall, Niagara1820 Alvan Fisher 4. Revolution and Federalism(1775~1800) A Nations Pride By Ralph Waldo Emerson Not gold but only men can makeA people great and strong;Men who for truth and honor's sakeStand fast and suffer long.Brave men who work while others sleep,Who dare while others fly...They build a nation's pillars deepAnd lift them to the sky.

"The Wood, Charolette Bronte, 1846 6. Come up from the fields father, here's a letter from our Pete, And come to the front door mother, here's a letter from thy dear son. Cool and sweeten Ohio's villages with leaves fluttering in the moderate wind, Alas poor boy, he will never be better, (nor may-be needs to be better, that brave and simple soul,) While they stand at home at the door he is dead already, The only son is dead. O that she might withdraw unnoticed, silent from life escape and withdraw, To follow, to seek, to be with her dear dead son.from Come Up From the Fields Father, by Walt Whitman (1900) The Civil War Little Soldier, Eastman Johnson(1864) 1861-1865 7. Reconstruction Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West, From North and from South comes the pilgrim and guest; When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board The old broken links of affection restored; When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more, And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before; What moistens the lip and what brightens the eye, What calls back the past, like the rich Pumpkin pie? Stanza 3 from The Pumpkinby John Greenleaf Whittier "October" by John WhettenEhninger, 1867 c. 1865 - 1877 8. Gilded Age c. 1875 - 1900 In wet wood and miry lane,Still we pant and pound in vain; Still with leaden foot we chace Waning pinion, fainting face; Still with grey hair we stumble on,Till, behold, the vision gone!Where hath fleeting beauty led?To the doorway of the dead.Life is over, life was gay:We have come the primrose way.-Stanza 3 from To Will .H. Robert Louis Stevenson, 1887 "Colonial Graveyard At Lexington by Childe Hassam, 1891 9. The End</p>
