The Reminiscences of Carl Schurz
by Carl Schurz
The chapter titles for Volume One are editorial creations. Originally A Sketch of Carl Schurz's Political Career 1869-1906 formed a second part of Volume Three; since this was not written by Carl Schurz, it has been separated from the material here. The Indexes which accompanied Volumes Two and Three are omitted.
