Cornell University has contributed to Making of America (MOA), a digital library of primary sources in American social history from the antebellum period through reconstruction. Here is an article from The New-England magazine from 1835: Never did a pilgrim approach Niagara with deeper enthusiasm than mine. I had lingered away from it, and wandered to [...]
