Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Tribute Book: A Record of the Munificence, Self-Sacrifice and Patriotism of the American People, During the War for the Union

The intent was one and the same, whether the particular object in view was to promote enlistments, to procure representative recruits, to relieve drafted men, to succor the families of volunteers, to sustain the efficiency of the army, to care for the sick and wounded, to send aid to the distressed Unionist within the rebel lines, to feed the impoverished operative abroad, to build soldiers rests, to endow orphan asylums, to give homes to living officers and erect monuments to dead ones. Our subject is the private generosity, the munificence, the philanthropy, of the War for the Union; and no form in which money has been obtained - outside of taxation, legislation, and appropriation, whether by states, counties, or towns - and expended for any purpose connected with the prosecution of the war, has been knowingly omitted. This stated, there is little else requiring notice in these preliminary pages. A grateful duty remains to the compiler - for compilation and annotation have been his principal labors - that of acknowledging the assistance received, without which not one page could have been prepared, nor one fact obtained. A book like this has not been produced without the asking of innumerable questions; and those to whom they have been addressed, have, in no case, let them pass unheeded, though they had often, doubtless, many more pressing things to do than answering them. To the corresponding secretaries of the various associations whose labors are here recorded, the thanks of the publishers are due, and are hereby cordially offered. To the presidents of the several commissions, to the superintendents of soldiers homes and asylums, to the treasurers of bounty and defence funds, to all who have afforded aid, the publishers gratefully confess their indebtedness.

One other debt they have to acknowledge, even if they are never able to pay it.

Inhaltsangabe: Excerpt from The Tribute Book: A Record of the Munificence, Self-Sacrifice and Patriotism of the American People, During the War for the Union

Book contains the story of seventy millions of dollars. Ordinarily, Millions do not'ffurnish an interesting or an instructive theme; he who writes their history has generally little to tell but a tale of selfishness and greed, or at best, of dogged in dustry or stubborn self-denial. It is rare that he who collects the chronicles of dollars and cents, pounds, shillings and pence, -can lay before the reader such a record of self-sacrifice as the following pages embody. These are not the annals of mercan tile shrewdness, of wealth heaped up by toil or avarice, of riches painfully gathered by patience or speedily swept together by genius or fortune: they are the records of money given, not money earned; of a labor of love, not of labor for hire and salary; of purse-strings unloosed, of the latch-string hang ing free, of self-assessment, of tribute rendered always willingly, often unasked. This volume, in a word, is a digest - the materials for twenty such having been condensed into one - of the ways and means by which the American people, having been taxed to pay three thousand millions of dollars for the prosecution of a war - of their own accord, without tax or toll.
