Jacob Abbott wrote many historical books for children. He was careful to ensure historical accuracy, and as he said himself in the preface to this book "Whatever of interest ... these stories may possess is due solely to the facts themselves which are recorded in them, and to their being brought together in a plain, simple, and connected narrative."

This is the story of Romulus, the founding of Rome and the early years of its history, written in a way both readable and enjoyable for adults and children alike. (Summary by Ruth Golding) (6 hr 31 min)

Ted,if you didn't want to read this,why bother. Read so fast and carelessly that it was spoiled for me.
