Biography
Edward Eggleston (1837-1902) held many jobs during his life - itinerant preacher, magazine editor, grammar school teacher and even laborer in Minnesota - but is known today primarily as an author and historian. His books and stories, which were popular in his day, are valued today more for their realism than their literary worth. Eggleston's works include The Hoosier Schoolmaster(1871), loosely based on the experiences of his brother and fellow teacher George Cary Eggleston, and The Circuit Rider: A Tale of the Heroic Age (1874), based on his own experiences as a traveling Methodist preacher. He turned to writing about history after a 1879 trip to Europe. Eggleston's most significant works in that subject include Beginners of a Nation (1896) and Transit of Civilization from England to America (1900).
