A history book transcribed by author Rebecca Magee Kovaleski offers interesting and valuable information on 19th-century America, the history of Oberlin College, and two central figures in history—Charlotte & David.

This book looks back at 19th-century American history through a series of letters, Oberlin College, and two notable figures: Charlotte Farnsworth and David Todd. The collection of letters reveals that Charlotte was in the education program to become a teacher and David became a minister. Both attended Oberlin College in Ohio and the letters collected in this release contain details of their friendship and courtship in the 1840s. The letters also contain information on social, political, medical, and geographical issues during the early nineteenth century. Behind it all, readers will discover what the social norms of the past were like and how a special bond between two people could inspire them to look at history with renewed interest.

This book will be featured at the 2011 Florida Library Association Book Exhibit in Orlando, FL, on May 4-6, 2011. For more information on this book, log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
