"Abundant material has been at hand, in the form of letters, and articles from our periodicals, to make a volume twice as large as this; but we have chosen to give [Rogers'] own account of his work, and as nearly as possible in his own language, leaving men to form their own judgement concerning his eventful life" (Preface, by the author's son). Samuel Rogers was born in Virginia, migrated with his family to Kentucky and then Missouri, fought in the War of 1812, and then became an itinerant preacher, traveling extensively in Missouri, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, and Virginia.
