Arcadia Press has made this history of colonial America, written in 1880, available in Kindle format. Currently a free download.

Due to its age, I imagine it is also available from Project Gutenberg and other sources too.

The question is, why would anyone want to read such a dated history?

To understand how people at the time thought and understood their own history?

I suppose, but such is the stuff of academia. Tracing how any country viewed its own history at any given time is pretty dry. I think they call it historiography.
I don't see this as something TMPers are going to go read.
