Excerpt from The Ancestry, Life, and Times of Hon. Henry Hastings Sibley

I purpose to write, in outline, the Ancestry, Life, and Times of Henry Hastings Sibley, the historic starting point of whose pedigree is first descried in the gray foretime, near the Plantagenets, and not remote from Norman conquest, when Saxons fought against their proud invaders. Brie?y, I desire to indicate historic names in the line descending thence, conspicuous through the scenes of English history, down to the times of the Pilgrim Fathers and days of Cromwell, the times of Carver, Standish, and Of Endicott's and Winthrop's ?eets, when, as part of a vast immigration, the Sibleys crossed the seas, while Westward the course of empire took its way, a line thence lengthening and widening through the mazes of American colonial and revolutionary strife; crossing the epoch of the Great Ordinance of 1787, continuing to the War Of 1812, when the subject of this Sketch was a babe a year old, and a prisoner of war in British hands; thence, hitherward, spreading through the settle ment of the Northwest Territory, and particularly of Minnesota, before it had a state or territorial name, and advancing to the period of the present writing. It is a long and sometimes tortuous road to travel, and much of our march must imitate the steps of Homer's gods in space.
